SubjectFwd: Transcend's "one of the most cavalier GPL violations in a long time"
From
this is a quick message to let people know that evidence has been
collected of not just knowingly-infringing copyright but *blatant*
copyright infringment [a la "bring it on, fuckers"] by transcend
technologies. does anyone have any recommendations as to whom should
be contacted in order to pursue a copyright violation case against
transcend? as a minor linux kernel source copyright holder they could
easily and simply remove the source code contributions i have made,
but i would still like to pursue them for copyright infringment.

not only that but it would provide the courts with clear evidence of
blatant copyright infringment. the penalties for such are extremely
high.
