Daniel Wallace v. IBM, et al
467 F.3d 1104, No. 06-2454 (7th Cir. November 9, 2006)
Court holds that distribution of open source software under the GNU General Public License, which allows use of the software and creation of derivative works therefrom for free, provided that all derivative works are similarly distributed under the terms of the same license, does not violate the antitrust laws. As stated by the Court "the GPL and open-source software have nothing to fear from the antitrust laws."
