Exactly. Currently I'm a bit sensitive to the issue, since I bought an
ebook-reader that runs on GPL software (Linux kernel + FBReader +
Busybox + some more stuff) and the supplier doesn't seem to want to
provice source code. And I can't even sue them since I'm not a copyright
holder in any of that, even though my rights are being violated, since I
have a right to have the source.

To name and shame: It is the AmbianceTechnologies Digibook MDB-106,
