Here's a web site with a
on how D-Link's Boxee Box device is allegedly violating
the GPL. Such violations are not generally noteworthy, but this one, if
true, is interesting in that it involves GPLv3-licensed software and a
user's ability to install new versions. Companies which sell locked-down
devices usually go well out of their way to avoid GPLv3-licensed software;
it seems that one package (GPG) may have slipped through in this case.
We may be about to see the first (known) attempt to enforce the new
provisions in GPLv3.
