They ship devices. Customers ask for sources. They give a canned response about industry standard being 90-120 days. Unacceptable. They know that going to court would take longer than that. They do it for each device. They need to go to court and stop this practice on current and future devices. I have a HTC One S. The stock firmware sucks and 3rd party firmware is buggy because the sources aren't released.
