Submission + - First Ever U.S. GPL Violation Lawsuit Filed (softwarefreedom.org)

Adam Hazzlebank writes: "The Software Freedom Law Center has filed the first ever U.S. copyright infringement lawsuit based on a violation of the GPL on behalf of the developers of BusyBox. The device in question is a manufactured by Monsoon Multimedia who have publicly acknowledged their use of BusyBox, but have so far refused to make the source available, as required by the GPL. This should be an interesting and important test case for the GPL."

All I want to know is: what's the wavelength of this 'evil color' (from TFA)?
