Looks like Sony has gone from prosecuting pirates to becoming one. Only days after the PS4 announcement too.
Over at the KDE Blog, Jonathan Riddell explains that Sony is using a KDE icon in violation of the LGPL3 license under which it is released:
The page in question is a ‘Choose your Vaio‘ webpage on the Sony UK site.
What does one do in cases like this? It seems that legal action would be a waste of time and money…hopefully, Sony takes note of this and corrects the issue. They’ve been heavily invested in Linux and Open Source for many years now with their platforms and I’d like to think they’d have learned from their rootkit debacle that you should act quickly to fix things before they blow up on the internet.
