Bradley M. Kuhn of the SFLC argues that the recent Microsoft/TomTom settlement should act as a wake-up call and prompt GPLv3 migrations: "Fortunately, the GPLv3 clarifies this issue, and improves the situation. Therefore, this is a great moment in our community to reflect on the importance of GPLv3 migration. The drafters of GPLv3, responding to the Microsoft/Novell deal, considered carefully how to address these sorts of agreements."
