""We began working with Cisco in 2003 to help them establish a
process for complying with our software licenses, and the initial
changes were very promising," explained Brett Smith, licensing
compliance engineer at the FSF. "Unfortunately, they never put in
the effort that was necessary to finish the process, and now five
years later we have still not seen a plan for compliance. As a
result, we believe that legal action is the best way to restore the
rights we grant to all users of our software.""
