LLC v General Elec. Co., 24 AD3d 425 [2005]). Estoppel requires
detriment to the party claiming to have been misled (see Nassau

Docket No. 2009-04019

There is no estoppel with respect to the GPL since the GPL clearly spells out the requirements for allowing covered code to be copied and distributed. That an anti-GPL crank believes the permissions of the GPL apply while the requirements do not simply confirms that person as a crank, but does not impact the GPL at all.

Don't go to a real court Hyman. You'll find the court won't indulge your
denials anymore than the federal courts listened to the Birther's claims
of non-citizenship for Obama. ROFL.
