<p>On Oct. 19, 2021, Software Freedom Conservancy  filed a lawsuit against
   Vizio Inc. for what it calls repeated failures to fulfill even the basic
   requirements of the General Public License (GPL).</p>

<p>The lawsuit alleges that Vizio’s TV products, built on its SmartCast system,
   contain software that Vizio unfairly appropriated from a community of
   developers who intended consumers to have very specific rights to modify,
   improve, share, and reinstall modified versions of the software.</p>

<p>Please reference this page for information about the lawsuit, including new
   updates about the case.</p>
