iPhone: Ironic Cisco Fiasco

Image for article titled iPhone: Ironic Cisco Fiasco

In creating their iPhone, apparently Cisco modified software owned by the public, but didn't publish their modifications as required by GPL licensing standards. This from the GPL Violations Project:

"...the timing is just perfect...For someone talking about Apple using Cisco's property, actually they're infringing on copyright themselves. So it's just a double standard."

Sure, Cisco owns "iPhone" fair and square, but this move was just tacky...and a little stupid.

samLD: I agree. Cisco's lack of compliance was "tacky and stupid".
