Barracuda Sneakwrap has a Nasty Bite

Interesting read on a product that is built on GPL software - according to
Barracuda's ToS, you will not get support for second hand purchased
equipment. From the article & threads, it is noted that this is possibly a
violation of the GPL & Doctrine of First Sale?


(also note the flame war in the threads aimed towards "all you
liberals"... cue the ROFLcopter!)
