BusyBox Gives Verizon The GPL Smackdown
There was a time not long ago when the GNU General Public License had never been the subject of litigation. That's no longer the case, as the BusyBox litigation machine has rolled on to a new target: Verizon.
BusyBox's two main developers — Erik Andersen and Rob Landley — have been keeping the Software Freedom Law Center busy in the last few months. Beginning with the landmark suit against Monsoon Media — the first ever GPL infringement suit, settled out of court at the end of October — and continuing with two more against High Gain Antennas and Xterasys Corp. They've now taken on an even bigger target, in the form of Verizon, the $90 billion-a-year communications giant.
