Submission + - SFLC Sues 14 Companies for BusyBox GPL Violations (softwarefreedom.org) 1

eldavojohn writes: The Software Freedom Law Center has named fourteen companies including Best Buy, Samsung, and Westinghouse with violating the GPL in nearly 20 separate products. This is similar to earlier BusyBox GPL suits. The commercial uses of BusyBox must be much more prolific than anyone could have imagine. Having dealt with hundreds of compliance problems and finding one violation per day, the SFLC recommends one thing: be responsive to their requests (they try to settle things in private first) lest you find one of these in your inbox.
