Another GPL violation case from top China IT firm? Hanwang this time.

Hanwang's eBook Reader products (汉王电纸书产品系列, are very popular in China market. They features an ARM processor and are running Linux with cramfs, which can be easily discovered from the update firmware the company has released. Also they are shipping BusyBox within them.

By no means I can find the source code to their Linux kernel / BusyBox. So perhaps this is yet another GPL violation case from top China IT firm. Anyone bother a law suit?
