Submission + - Obamacare Website violates GPL (weeklystandard.com)

An anonymous reader writes: According to the Weekly Standard, the troubled Healthcare Marketplace website (www.healthcare.gov) uses code from DataTables.net, dual-licensed under GPL 2 or a BSD license, without attribution, even going so far as to remove the copyright notice. While the effort is undoubtedly a complex software engineering project, the lack of scruples is only slightly more troubling that the engine was designed by a company that apparently didn't realize that client-side code is easy to examine.
