Hope you have a good week with the little terrors.

We shall see, in the fullness of time.  However, it's not a fraudulent
claim.  It would appear that busybox's copyright has been violated, and
Erik Andersen is a copyright holder.  If a case is dismissed on a
technicality, that isn't fraud.

However, if your view of the case were accurate, the SFLC wouldn't have
Started it in the first place.

I suspect the usual thing will happen, there will be a settlement with
each defendent involving it coming into compliance with the GPL,
appointing a compliance officer, and paying an unspecified sum in
damages.

Further speculation seems pointless.
