I think China Telecom is violating GPL in one of its products, iTV.
The product uses linux as its OS. To run on MIPS architecture, it does a
lot of modification to linux kernel. But there is NO source published. I
phoned them and they just refused to open the source.
The product 'iTV' is distributed and being used by many people. And I'm
sure that it uses Linux kernel, for I've checked its UART output.
