  • It seems that the point of claiming copyright is to enforce the remedy, that being the injunction to stop distributing the files without the copyright. From what I'm reading, if they find that the license (contract) was violated, the typical remedy is damages. In this case, the desired remedy would be, "stop doing that." In other words, put the copyright info back in the files or stop distributing them.

    The question I have is, assuming the court finds that the license was violated, can, or would it impose that as part of the remedy the defendant must abide by the license terms from that point forward? In other words, can it impose something like the injunction at a later point?

    I think this is key to what authors want. You can have it for free, just include my copyright message. Oh, and don't turn around and try to patent my own software and charge me for it.
