Well you doubless lack the legal education of the district court judge so the conventional wisdom is that he is more likely to be correct than you.

But he was already found wrong once by the appeals court,

Even so, how do you think that Jacobsen can manage to show "irreparable harm" in regard to Katzer's use of the code?

By showing that Katzer did not honor the terms of the license.

That doesn't seem to be sufficient anymore. That is the whole issue here. It once was a slam dunk and now it may be necessary to actually show how one is harmed. That is where the GPL is weakest and the Artistic license, too.
