Hey Hyman how is the progress to get the source code for a
refurbished Insignia player you so badly needed some time ago,
silly?

Nothing yet. This is, of course, why the SFLC is still pressing
its suit against Insignia. If it gets to trial, Insignia will be in
the rather odd position of having promised to comply with the GPL
in its manual. Sounds like promissory estoppel to me.

Promissory estoppel is a defense, not a complaint.


Really?

Google <"promissory estoppel is a cause of action">.
You'll get over 9000 url results. Are all 9000 wrong?

"Under American jurisprudence, equitable estoppel is available only as a
defense, while promissory estoppel can be used as the basis of a cause
of action."
