Just for once Hyman, try to read the Complaint. Andersen claims (falsely) that he owns BusyBox, v.0.60.3 -- that's exactly what he re4gistered with the Copyright Office. His claim to ownership of BusyBox, v.0.60.3 is the *only* thing that gives the court jurisdiction to hear infringement claims.

You can't register Donald Duck with the Copyright Office and then claim infringement over Daffy Duck.

The complaint is not relevant for a settlement out of court anyway. The past misconduct can't be cured by distributing complaint source with non-corresponding newer binaries.

You're probably best know in this group as the guy who likes to Mooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove the goalposts -- keep trying Hyman. Just keep trying.

The goalpost is compliance with the GPL when distributing software. As always.

In the instant case Erik Andersen wasn't even the original author of BusyBox v.0.60.3.

Why then would defendant settle and publish?

How would I know DAK?  Maybe they're as dumb as Erik Andersen.
You're as free to speculate about their motive as I am.

Sincerely,
