What say you now?

Verzion is unaware of, ignores or willfully violates the GPL by distributing GPL'd binary code from

http://www2.verizon.net/micro/actiontec/actiontec.asp

but failing to ensure that downloaders can easily find the source
 code (offer) at the time they download the binary.


The Verizon complaint states:

*******************************************************************

11. Upon information and belief, Verizon distributes to its
customers the Actiontec MI424WR wireless router (“Infringing
Product”), which contains embedded executable software (“Firmware”).
Defendant also provides the Firmware corresponding to the Infringing
Product for download via its website,
http://www2.verizon.net/micro/actiontec/actiontec.asp.

*******************************************************************

There is *still* no source code CD or offer to provide source code
available on the firmware update site:

http://www2.verizon.net/micro/actiontec/actiontec.asp

The "previously sold" router and CD stuff from Hymen was a Red
Herring attempt to divert attention from Verizon's firmware update
site. (If the router shipped with the disputed code there would be
no need for a firmware update site.)

We can conclude with confidence that Verizon told the SFLC to
kiss their royal purple ass.

What say you now Hymen?

Sincerely,
Rjack :)
