    <p>In October 2011, Conservancy received a GPL violation report on
 
  BusyBox for VMware's ESXi products.  Conservancy opened the matter in its
 
  usual, friendly, and non-confrontational way.  Nevertheless, VMware
 
  immediately referred Conservancy to VMware's outside legal counsel in the
 
  USA, and Conservancy negotiated with VMware's legal counsel throughout
 
  late 2011, 2012 and 2013.  We exchanged and reviewed CCS candidates, and
 
  late 2011, 2012 and 2013.  We exchanged and reviewed
 
  <a title="Complete, Corresponding Source" href="https://copyleft.org/guide/comprehensive-gpl-guidech6.html#x9-470005.2.1">CCS</a> candidates, and
 
  admittedly, VMware made substantial and good efforts toward compliance on
 
  BusyBox.  However, VMware still refused to fix a few minor and one major
 
  compliance problem that we discovered during the process.  Namely, there
 
  was a major violation regarding Linux itself that ultimately became
 
  Christoph's key complaint in this lawsuit.</p>
