GPL Distribution violation, First US Lawsuit filed

This complaint (legalese pdf) has been filed on behalf of two BusyBox developers which sue Monsoon for not providing the source code to the GPL’ed BusyBox program which they use in their products.

Apparently this is the first ever US lawsuit of this kind and the lawyers of the Software Feedom Law Center (SFLC) are handling the case. See their announcement here.

It’s going to be interesting how the thing plays out.
