Edit: Archos has a pretty good kernel source history. So we ought to target them instead I guess... The other company doesn't look like they are replying.
To Archos,I hereby request the Linux Kernel source code for the Archos 7 Home Tablet being sold worldwide, according to section 3 of the GNU General Public License v2 under which the Linux kernel the device is based on is licensed. A download URL will be fine.The Android platform runs a Linux platform. According to the GNU General Public License, as soon as the binary code has been published (which it has by means of the release of the A7HT), Archos is obliged to instantly release the source code (including any custom modifications) on request.This includes all the source code of all drivers for the device. The Linux kernel version is 2.6.25.You will find a list of companies who have violated the GPL here: GPL Violations homepage - The gpl-violations.org projectYou will learn about the GNU GPL here: GNU General Public License - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaIf you are found to be in violation of the GPL. we will have to report this as an official GPL violation, after which legal action will be taken in due time.Regards, _________
Finaly we have a starting point, tho I don't think they will react to gpl complaints, only if some preasure is made by bigger entities.xaueious;33050 said:I posted what I knew to gpl-violations. Hopefully we can get some sort of response: Rockchip RK2808a/RK2808 All Variants GPL Violation
