Why do you think anyone is hiding anything? For example, <> says "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
