[$] A farewell to LWN

Post Syndicated from ris original https://lwn.net/Articles/879072/rss

Back at the beginning of 2020, it was predicted that retirements would increase
during this decade. In 2021, the prediction
was that retirements would increase over the next couple of years. It is
happening and LWN is no exception. I am retiring at the end of this year
after more than 20 years with LWN.

So who am I and how did I get here? To some, I’m a name at the bottom of
some LWN page. To a few, I’m the one that reminds them when their LWN group
subscription is about to expire. You might have even met me at a
conference. Not that I have been to very many. Mostly I tend to be quietly
in the background watching the LWN mailbox, looking for brief items and
quotes of the week (sorry I haven’t found much lately), proofreading
articles, managing subscriptions, and more. But I’m older than most of you
and this is my last LWN weekly edition. Getting here is a bit of story.

SFC: First Update on the Vizio lawsuit

Post Syndicated from ris original https://lwn.net/Articles/877294/rss

The Software Freedom Conservancy provides
an update
on its suit against Vizio for
copyleft license violations. Vizio’s response was not to release the
source code:

Instead, Vizio filed
a request to “remove” the case from California State Court (into US federal
court)
, which indicates Vizio’s belief that consumers have no
third-party beneficiary rights under copyleft! In other words, Vizio’s
answer to this complaint is not to comply with the copyleft licenses, but instead imply that Software Freedom Conservancy — and all other purchasers of the devices who might want to assert their right under GPL and LGPL to complete, corresponding source — have no right to even ask for that source code.
