ho hum.  Just another GPL violator having their errors pointed out to
them in court.  It would have been much less painful to print a
reference to the GPL in the user manual and offer a link to download
the source.

"Judge Shira Scheindlin of the Southern District of New York has now
granted Software Freedom Conservancy, a wing  of Software Freedom Law
Center, triple damages ($90,000) for willful copyright infringement,
lawyer's fees and costs ($47,865), an injunction against Westinghouse,
and an order requiring Westinghouse to turn over all infringing
equipment in its possession to the plaintiffs, to be donated to
charity. So, presumably a lot of high-def TVs are on their way to
charities. "
