I would not dare to speculate how long it would take Lala-Terekhov
land, but since the GPL does not even fix a price (you can demand
whatever you want), it will be fun to see how this is supposed to get
off the ground.  It would probably be easier to sue China because its
products lower the prices Wallace can achieve in the market.

The real question is not whether Wallace can prevail.  The real
question is whether he can manage to get this case to trial before it
gets thrown out of court.

My personal guess is that he is aiming to have it thrown out of court
on a technicality, so that we'll have a chorus of idiots spreading the
news that the GPL is so shaky that only a technicality could avert its
impending doom, and that it is certain to fall next time around.
