Again, my point was only that punitive remedies have traditionally been shunned by the FSF, regardless of how you would handle, or believe they should handle, such cases. I should point out again that, as AFAIK, the only relationship the FSF has to this case is through their counsel, the SFLC, who is representing BusyBox.
So BusyBox may want to handle this differently that the FSF would. The problem is the SFLC espousing an opinion that is at odds with the opinion of one of their other clients.
Or maybe the SFLC also wants to pursue this case in court to establish case law for the GPL.
