That is not true. While, as external observers, we are not privy to
the settlement negotiations, the clear evidence is that Verizon settled the case with the SFLC, given that GPL information and GPLed sources appeared after the case was dismissed. Verizon now includes information on the GPL in the manuals for its routers and makes the source for their firmware available on their web site or by mail.

Read the Complaint Hyman. Just read the Complaint. It's a matter of
public record. I'll kiss your ass on the public square if it mentions
any registered copyrights.


"Pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 411(a) as well as its predecessor, § 13, it has
been held repeatedly that ownership of a copyright registration is a
jurisidictional prerequisite to an action for infringement. . . . A
complaint which fails to plead compliance with § 411(a) is defective and
subject to dismissal."; Techniques, Inc. v. Rohn, 592 F.Supp. 1195,
1197; 225 U.S.P.Q. 741 (S.D.N.Y. 1984).


Who's the World gonna' believe Hyman? You or their own lying eyes?

Keep spinnin' Hyman -- it won't help -- but keep spinnin' anyway.
