Alleged Israeli GPL Violation Settled Out of Court

“As reported earlier on Linux.com, the case began in early 2006
when Alexander Rabinovitch, CEO of International Chess University
(IchessU) approached Alexander Maryanovsky, the developer of Jin, a
Java-based chess client, about writing a chess client and server
for IchessU. When Maryanovsky declined, IchessU produced its own
software, which Maryanovsky described as “95% my code and 5%

“When Maryanovsky’s attempts to discuss the matter in person
with Rabinovitch were refused, he retained Jonathan J. Klinger, an
Israeli attorney with a familiarity with free and open source
licenses and a member of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.”
