However it very much depends on how the question is phrased and what information they are given.

There have been around 4 or 5 people over the years who have claimed they've spoken to lawyers who said the Diku licence was enforcable, although obviously that's no more verifiable than any of the counter-claims (i.e., on all sides there's no more proof than "I spoke to a lawyer and he said..."). I've also spoken to a lawyer myself, although I was told that his response didn't constitute legal advice and that I couldn't pass it on, which made the exercise somewhat pointless.

I agree. I tried to remain factual and provide all the relevant info I had, but I guess it's quite difficult to remain 100% objective at all times.

If there really has been 4 to 5 people who really have discussed the Diku case with legal experts and they have been told that the Diku team could enforce the existing license in such a way to prevent existing MUDs from operating, then ofcourse it changes the situation. I was not aware of it (I have not found any such references), for which I'm sorry. It would naturally also makes the situation much more interesting to see one of these cases actually go to court, if only to end this ambiguity on the forums and the silly namecalling that usually follows.

Nonetheless, thanks for a nice debate which has remained surprisingly civil
