How Ubiquiti Networks Is Creatively Violating the GPL 225

New submitter futuristicrabbit writes: Networking company Ubiquiti Networks violates the GPL, but not in the way you'd expect. Not only did the kernel shipped in their router firmware not correspond to the sources given, but their failure to provide the source led to a vulnerability they created being unpatched long after its disclosure. They're maintaining the appearance of compliance without actually complying with the GPL.

Because we joined the UN as a permanent member of the security council. It's our job to protect the rights of foreign people from human rights violations.

I mean I suppose we could resign from our position, supposing you like the idea of China and Russia being in charge the security council.

Then it would be up to UN Forces, *not* US Forces to enforce any UN actions.

When I made the move from worker bee to director all I did was ditch the tee shirts for (mostly vendor-supplied or company) golf shirts and made sure to have a denim overshirt or corduroy sportcoat handy for improtu meetings w/ CxO-level mtgs. Levis 501s and sneakers were still mandatory for geek cred.

Weekend, where are you?
