Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone can give me some info on a questionable topic:

I reasontly bought a Elitegroup (ECS) laptop distributed with Thiz Linux.
The distro CDs did not contain the kernel source, so I requested it from ECS.
They refused to give me the code.

This code is modified by them in order to fully support the hardware inside the machine.
Isn't it illeagal to refuse publishing a GPLed code?

Best Regards,
