SubjectRe: GPL Violation of 'sveasoft' with GPL Linux Kernel/Busybox + code

I don't think they make it clear *what* you are paying for. I think it
is reasonable if they claim that you are paying for the distribution,
NOT the license.

I am not trying to defend sveasoft. Personally, I dislike their method,
but I'm gathering information to try and understand who's right, who's
wrong and if sveasoft is indeed violating the GPL.

pedro venda.
