We have gone through this in detail in the past using the
Wayback Machine. Actiontec was distributing routers for
something like a year without making the GPLed sources
available, during which period the copyright holders
noticed and started legal action. That legal action led
to both the lawsuit being filed and Actiontec coming into
compliance. Either the plaintiffs attorneys were not aware
of the new web site, or they had a few other issues they
wanted to resolve through the suit. In any case, because
Actiontec had come into compliance, the plaintiffs
dismissed their suit.
