Submission + - Healthcare.gov Violates GPL/BSD Terms (weeklystandard.com)

brianerst writes: The new website for the PPACA insurance exchanges, Healthcare.gov, is currently violating the terms of the open source DataTables jQuery plugin. It is dual licensed as GPL v2 and BSD (3-point) so all that is required is to leave the comment header with the copyright notices and it's free to use. Healthcare.gov replaces the comment header with one stripping all copyright and ownership details while leaving source comments alone.

Your government in action!
