GPL misappropriation

I have been poking around in the source code for BusyBox, v.0.60.3. and
unsurprisingly most every thing in the those command line utilities are
substantially similar to the old BSD4.4-lite tree. Not only are the
defendants Best But et. al. not guilty of infringing Erik Andersen's
source code but BusyBox has appropriated code from the BSD tree and
tried to put it illegally under the GPL.

Remember when SCO tried this stunt and the Linux community led by
pusillanimous PJ over at Groklaw went ballistic? Where's the outrage now?
