The FSF has sued Cisco for damages regarding their continued violations of the GPL and LGPL by not distributing source for FSF code in a long list of products:
Defendant distributed Plaintiff’s Programs in this manner in the Firmware for Linksys’ models EFG120, EFG250, NAS200, SPA400, WAG300N, WAP4400N, WIP300, WMA11B, WRT54GL, WRV200, WRV54G, and WVC54GC, and in the program Quick-VPN.
Here’s the complaint. What caught my eye was what they are asking for. Among other things:
(3) That the Court order Defendant to account for and disgorge to Plaintiff all profits derived by Defendant from its unlawful acts;
That’s a long list of pretty popular products, and the violations have been going on since 2003. If the FSF does press for full damages (rather than, say, the filing being a way to get Cisco to comply, and then they’ll drop it) and the judge awards this, it’ll surely fund the FSF and SFLC for years.
