"Monsoon Multimedia today announced efforts to fully comply with the GPL. Monsoon is in settlement negotiations with BusyBox to resolve the matter and intends to fully comply with all open-source software license requirements. Monsoon will make modified BusyBox source code publicly available on the company web-site in the coming weeks."

In a way, this is sad, seeing the GPL tested in US court would have brought further credibility. Settlements, while good, don't prove anything legally.

That's what I thought when I read this, too.

At the same time it would be catastrophic if it failed in court.
