It's hard to tell.

Why do you think anyone is hiding anything? For example,
    "As a result of the plaintiffs agreeing to dismiss the lawsuit
     and reinstate Actiontec's and its customer's rights to distribute
     BusyBox under the GPL, Actiontec has agreed to appoint an Open
     Source Compliance Officer within its organization to monitor and
     ensure GPL compliance, to publish the source code for the version
     of BusyBox it previously distributed on its Web site, and to
     undertake substantial efforts to notify previous recipients of
     BusyBox from Actiontec and its customers, including Verizon, of
     their rights to the software under the GPL. The settlement also
     includes an undisclosed amount of financial consideration paid to
     the plaintiffs by Actiontec."

I guess you can be enough of a nosey parker to want to know exactly
how much was paid, but otherwise there isn't anything secret about
the settlement terms.
