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.

Actually it seems that Bruce Perens doesn't seem to have any remaining code in BusyBox.

This is primarily because he hasn't contributed to the project since 1996 (over a decade ago).

See http://busybox.net/~landley/forensics.txt for the details of the analysis and the rationale.
