So they [SFLC] didn't suddenly "become aware" of anything at all. They just became suddenly aware that they were out to lunch on the law and were about to have their case tossed out of court, so they surrendered, begging Verizon to not make an issue of things and probably paying for Verizon's costs. It was a total loss.

That's not the way the SFLC sees it. On we have:

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.

That a self-serving 100% *unverifiable* claim from the SFLC.

The defendant's agreed to dismiss the lawsuit WITH PREJUDICE and
agreed to cease filing any future frivolous lawsuits:
