Busybox is important because it is a proxy for other software, usually the Linux kernel but there's always 10 or 20 other Open Source programs in the typical Linux-based product too. The same plaintiff also has rights in uClibc and has asserted those through SFC, especially in regard to static linking.
It's important to note that SFC is also a plaintiff in these cases, not just the provider of pro-bono legal counsel. They hold enough copyrights for projects they support that they usually have something that is infringed.
