Submission + - Barnes and Noble allegedly violating GPL for Nook (barnesandnoble.com)

tulare writes: The boot process in B&N's flagship Nook Tablet is locked (good discussion here) and now one user has started a thread at the B&N support forums to address the question of whether or not their boot process is GPL-compliant. The initial response from B&N is telling: they deleted the first thread raising the issue and then marked the current thread "Operates as Intended." As an owner of one of these beasties myself, I'd love to fully utilize the hardware I own.
