The SFC does not pay anybody to list Boost as a member project. The
SFC is a US non-profit organization that provides legal and some
financial services to open source projects (including Boost). Part of
their work involves working with Google to help support funding for
their Summer of Code program. They do the same for a number of open
source projects.

I suspect that the suit was brought on behalf of the author(s) of
BusyBox and has absolutely nothing to do with Boost. Although it is
nice to know that we have a representative willing to sue Best Buy to
protect the rights reserved by Boost contributors.
