I see MontaVista aggressively contributing, and advocating for, their
code in upstream projects, which strikes me as a good thing, above
and beyond their duty to give customers the source upon request.
What loophole are they exploiting?

Don Marti                  Even if we don't get DMCA reform, loudly
http://zgp.org/~dmarti     demanding DMCA reform is going to get the
dmarti@zgp.org             injustice of the DMCA in front of the next
KG6INA                     jury.  Make noise.  It counts.
