Ouch. It took me a while to realize that the referenced
date is Decmember 7, not July 12!

Anyway, the WaybackMachine doesn't have anything from the
Actiontec source page after August 22, 2007, and Actiontec
had not yet posted the FIOS sources by then. It's clear
from my previous post that Verizon and Actiontec were out
of compliance with the GPL for most of 2007. Actiontec
had remedied the situation by December 7, but we don't
know on what date that actually happened.

There's not a lot of time between August 22 and December 7,
and it's easily possible that even if Actiontec had come into
compliance before SFLC filed their suit, SFLC might not have
noticed. That would explain why the suit was quickly dropped.
