SFLC files GPL lawsuit on behalf of Busybox developers

Let's hope this will work out! It will open the road for several other cases where GPL is violated (see ffmpeg and mplayer's violations by commercial packages).

It is fair after all. Either the distributors will properly credit the developers and mention the existance of the free alternative, or they should be forced to pay a lot of money for distributing copyrighted software without permission. Money which can be used to fund the open source project and put more money into SFLC's pool form chasing more violations. And oss projects definitelly need money!
