Hello Max,

As I explained, we just changed the key part from the libwimp.so.1 source.
Anyway, I attached the unchanged code.

Best regards,
Eric Shim

Eric, have your engineers been able to find the GPL-compatible source code
of "libwimp.so.1"?

Please don't understimate the severity of your situation. The core of your
product is my software, and it appears that you have been selling it for
years without my permission.

It is trivial to see that source on your website does not match the binary
on my Aurender box.  I insist that you send me the matching source code of
that very binary.

Let's see if your engineers are able to provide the source code of
libwimp.so.1 with a free license. If not, we'll have serious problems.

Hello Max Kellermann
 
First of all thank you for choosing Aurender.
For the MPD source, you can find it from our website download section.
http://www.aurender.com/page/download
You can find GPL code center link in the page.

About other source, I will forward this information to our engineers.

Dead sir or madam,

I have an Aurender A10, and it was shipped with a file "local.tar.gz",
SHA-256
32413ec552b27e6d868ced17c7de2423cfd6eeb2b21f72b31196bb9c2e0e5425

This file contains a copy of a software of which I own the copyright, that
is "bin/mpd", SHA-256
83f46f0eefd78e9cf6afa56d4065688806a73e486a4ffb5b008bbbe72ed3e382

This software has been linked with a library called "lib/libwimp.so.1"
which is also contained in your USB stick, SHA-256
1f9b9a2fd3c06a2e920e0057bc6b5aa43216d1d898e16c9b5df61f1e22cc42c6

However, what I could not find is a written offer to provide the source
code of these binaries.  Please note that this is required
according to the terms of the GPLv2 section 3.  Which means that your
product violates my copyright.

I assume that not complying part of the GPLv2 was an oversight, and I can
easily forgive that.

What do I insist is that you provide the full source code of both the "mpd"
binary and the file "libwimp.so.1".

Note that failure to provide the full source code of both files constitutes
a serious copyright violation.  Additionally, it will terminate your
license according to GPLv2 section 4, rendering all of your products
containing my copyrighted software illegal.

I expect to receive the full source code and full GPL compliance within two
seeks, that is until December 31st 2017.

Regards,
Max Kellermann
