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.

Sounds like old Bruce is at it again, either (once again) wanting his name on the wall or seeking for monetary compensation.

Well, the part (paraphrasing here) about how the companies should pay him a consultancy fee instead of working with the SFLC should tip you off ;-)
