LCA 2011: How to catch FOSS infringers out

The phenomenal growth in the use of Linux in the embedded market means that many people use and sell the kernel without knowing they are doing so. Others are aware, but choose to stay quiet, knowing that they are, in one way or another, not keeping to the terms of the licence under which Linux is published.

It's a long way from the cold boulevards of Paris to the searing heat of Brisbane but Stefano Zacchiroli has spent the 20-odd hours needed to make the trip because he wants to tell people in the FOSS community about the vital role that the Debian GNU/Linux Project still has to play.
