GNU fans never lose, they just mooooooooooooooooooove the goalposts.

It is up to the rights holders to decide whether they are satisfied
with how they are being treated.

There weeeeeeeeeeeeent the goalposts.

In this case, they appear to have
decided that since owners of these routers are free to run, read,
modify, and share the code it comes with, they are satisfied with
the outcome and do not need to pursue the matter further.

Confucius say, "Appearances deceive".

People who get the router get a manual and disk describing the GPL
(and possibly containing the source - the manual isn't clear). The
source for firmware upgrades is available as well.
