What's puzzling is that rjack appears to be right about one very 
important thing, though.  Doing a search of copyright registrations, I 
can't find one for Busybox (or for anything else by the people listed in 
the lawsuits as the copyright owners).

It also doesn't appear the Busybox counts as a non-US Berne work, and so 
registration is a prerequisite to suit.

Can anyone explain what is going on here?  Is the search at not up to date?  Are the defendants not bothering to 
check because they just assume the work must have been registered?  Is 
Busybox actually a non-US Berne work?
