Microsoft opened Linux-driver code after 'violating' GPL • The Register

It's interesting that Microsoft claims that the users of open source software are at risk of a lawsuit due to copyright violations, yet in the same breath prove that commercial software is at the same risk if they choose to violate those same copyright laws.
Microsoft opened Linux-driver code after 'violating' GPL • The Register: "A network driver in Microsoft's Hyper-V used open-source components licensed under the GPL and statically linked to binary parts. The GPL does not permit the mixing of closed and open-source elements."
