Rahul, Rahul. The complaint stated:

"This is an action by Erik Andersen, an individual, and Rob Landley, an
individual, (“Plaintiffs”) by and through their attorneys, the Software
Freedom Law Center, Inc., to recover damages arising from infringement
of their copyrights by Verizon Communications, Inc. (“Defendant”) and to
enjoin Defendant’s future infringement. Specifically, Defendant
distributed and continues to distribute Plaintiffs’ copyrighted BusyBox
software ..."

*continues to distribute Plaintiffs'*

*continues to distribute Plaintiffs'*

*continues to distribute Plaintiffs'*

*continues to distribute Plaintiffs'*

*continues to distribute Plaintiffs'*

The issue of Verison continuing to distribute Plaintiffs' "copyrighted
BusyBox software" has been decided to the prejudice of Plaintiffs
(they've filed a notice of voluntarily dismissal with prejudice against
themselves). The case is over. Verizon can continue to distribute
Plaintiffs' "copyrighted BusyBox software".

To wit:


(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can 
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards 
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
