we've got a couple of GPL violators in the linuxbios space. I know Orion 
Microsystems has got caught between a rock and a hard place and is 
distributing linuxbios-based systems without releasing sources; I have no 
idea if this via fastboot is linuxbios or not; via denies that it is.

I don't have the energy to pursue these guys.
