First GPL Lawsuit is Settled
The drama of the first lawsuit under the GPL license sort of fizzled because the parties settled their suit. BusyBox sued Monsoon over GPL licensed technology included in Monsoon products because Monsoon would not disclose the source code of the modified product as the license required. The suit would have been the first test of the GPL license in a U.S. court if it had gone to trial. The parties, however, settled. Everybody gets what they want. Monsoon gets to ship its products with BusyBox codes and they will disclose their source code. BusyBox also gets some money.
