The free software project netfilter/iptables continues their series of successful GPL enforcements.

At this time, the netfilter/iptables core team was granted a preliminary injunction against the German subsidiary of Sitecom.

The court acknowledges that the license terms of the GNU GPL are not fulfilled, and Sitecom has no right to distribute netfilter/iptables based products without fulfilling the conditions set forth in the GPL.
