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.

Bruce may not have contributed code since 1996 but that doesn't mean all his code was gone then. Bruce seems to be asserting that some of the devices in question use Busybox versions that contain code he wrote.
