The Verizon headquarters has V-e-r-i-z-o-n on the building. Does that make all that brick and mortor "source code" too?

A Verizon-branded manual for a Verizon-branded router has a section on the GPL and the router comes with a GPL disk. This is no longer an issue of having to suppose things based on URL contents. It's all there in red and white. Of course the GPL naysayers will try to find ways to deny the evidence, but you can
 feel the flop sweat building.

Stuff the rhetoric and just show the us code that V-e-r-i-z-o-n is
d-i-s-t-r-i-b-u-t-i-n-g (other than in firmware in the routers).

If we do find Verizon distributing some GPL source code (which we
haven't) it would be due to the SFLC paying Verizon to host the code
on their servers because of the settlement agreement that
accompanied the voluntary dismissal WITH PREJUDICE by the SFLC.
