It is also the case that <http://www.comtrend.com/na/contact.htm>
says "Comtrend Corporation North America provides downloads by request only." so it may be that in order to get the
GPL-compliant sources you must register and ask for it.
So it may be that you're just moooooooooooooooooooooving the
goalposts again.

The goalpost has always been that people getting binaries derived
from GPL-licensed sources are provided with access to the
_corresponding_ source code, licensed under the GPL at no additional
charge, and are given notice about the licensing.  What imaginary
goalposts you fancy moving around in that confused brain of yours is
not relevant.

It's put up or shut up time Hyman. So where's the link to "BusyBox v. 0.60.3" which the SFLC claims causes the infringement problems?

The SFLC claimed nothing of that sort. The infringement problem is caused by significant amounts of code registered with the copyright office via BusyBox version 0.60.3. But that does not mean that the infringing version itself is identical to 0.60.3, or actually to any unmodified and/or released BusyBox version. The licensing conditions
 call for making the source code corresponding to the delivered
binary version available, not anything else.

That's been the state of affairs from the start.  That you keep
getting confused in different manners does not "move the goalposts".


Keep mooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooovin' those goal posts DAK. Living
an illusion takes a special guy. Don't let reality intrude!

Sincerely,
RJack :)
