Till is a great guy for SFC to have on side, but both parties to the case are doing PR at the moment and I'm not dishing out free passes. The only "bias" is the one that says "if you aren't blindly supporting SFC then you are an enemy".
However, this case is likely to be much more about the interpretation of the license. I believe the reason there's been no resolution is VMWare's legal team and SFC have different views of what constitutes "compliance". VMWare told me they believe they are already in full compliance with the license and that the case is meritless as a consequence. SFC obviously believe otherwise and has gone out of its way to orchestrate press coverage to frame the matter for community consumption as VMWare acting abusively.
As a consequence, I'm not going to cast my lot with either side until I've had a VMWare expert explain their position to me. Sadly I doubt that will happen before they go to court with that position.
If you want the background to properly critique western responses to Daesh (and western engagement with Islam in other forms), study this carefully.
