GPLv2 copyright suit targets 14 firms

The suit is the latest of several lawsuits filed by the SFLC in recent years on behalf of the open source BusyBox, a collection of utilities that is widely used in embedded Linux devices.

This is the first such SFLC suit, however, to target so many different companies and products at once, says the pro bono legal organization.
