In amongst all the EU constitution revolution and the TCP hoo-hah, the Netfilter(/iptables) project has been granted a preliminary injunction against Sitecom GmbH, to enforce the GPL (in .de). Is this the first time the GPL's been near a court?

Meanwhile, BBC says that curiosity is the reason why people find other people's mobile-phone chats annoying. Makes sense - my girlfriend finds it more annoying when, not only can you hear just one side of the conversation, but that which you can hear is in a different language, which I get too. Wonder why we care so much about what other people are saying - are we really so voyeuristic? Or just paranoid that they're talking about us?
