Introduction

This page was created to collect all the GPL-Violations of Buffalo Technology regarding the Buffalo Linkstations/Terstations.

The plan is to confront Buffalo with the complete Collection at once instead of just asking for bits and pieces every time. We in fact want the source-code of everything that was not properly included in the GPL-packages that can be downloaded at their US-ftp-server. If Buffalo does not give us everything what we should get regarding the GPL, then we most likely will get in touch with http://gpl-violations.org/. Read the short english article at wikipedia also.

What is GPL?

Check the german or english wikipedia-articles.

So what does this mean?

The source-code of every application/kernel/anything that was licenced under the GPL has to be made available. The package has to be the the exact version of the source-code while it was compiled...so even if it was patched it has to be released that way. GPL-Violations occur then when companies "forget" to release everything.
