Breaching conditions of an open-source license

A Last December the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled in Jacobsen v. Katzer, 535 F.3d 1373 (Fed Cir. 2008), that a user who violated the conditions of a web-linked open-source software license was liable not only for breach of contract but for copyright violations.  That decision raises a lot of interesting issues, which are dealt with by lawyers Jonathan Moskin, Howard Wettan, and Adam Turkel from the New York office of White & Case LLP in Open Source After 'Jacobsen v. Katzer.'
