Introduction

This page was created to collect all possible the GPL-Violations of Buffalo Technology or other companies regarding the Buffalo Linkstations/Terstations. Please note that for now we do not claim that a particular company legally violates the GPL. There are just some issues we think need closer investigation, and we intend to collect these alleged issues here.

The plan is to confront Buffalo or other companies with the complete collection of issues at once instead of just asking for bits and pieces every time. For example, we in fact want the source-code of everything that we think might not properly be included in the GPL-packages that can be downloaded at Buffalo's US-ftp-server. If we don't get everything what we think we should get regarding the GPL (if we think our rights are violated), then we most likely will get in touch with http://gpl-violations.org/ for further discussions. 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 licensed under the GPL has to be made available. And it has to be made available in a certain form. And the availability has to be announced in a particular way. 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, for example, if companies "forget" to release everything.
