GNU, GPL, Open Source Yesterday, we reported that the Software Freedom Law Center had started a lawsuit against several companies who they claim violated the GPL. The subject of the violation was BusBox, and the SFLC claims it is operating on behalf of the authors of BusyBox. Original BusyBox author Bruce Perens, however, begs to differ.

No, Bruce is not claiming that the lawsuit is a dirty trick. His whole argument is that he thinks he is a copyright holder in the current BusyBox and the current developers say that he is not.
