LXer: Violate the GPL at your own risk

Published at LXer:

It used to be that companies could get away with stealing GPLed open-source code into their own software and no one would be the wiser. Those days are done. Oh, it still happens, but the SFLC’s (Software Freedom Law Center) recent legal actions on behalf of BusyBox’s principal developers have been putting the fear of open-source violations into unscrupulous software companies. In the latest chapter, SFLC has sued Bell Microproducts Inc. and Super Micro Computer Inc. for using BusyBox’s open-source software without honoring its open-source license.
