"D-Link and Poul-Henning Kamp announced today that they have amicably
resolved their dispute regarding access to Mr. Kamp's GPS.Dix.dk
NTP Time Server site. D-Link's existing products will have
authorized access to Mr. Kamp's server, but all new D-Link
products will not use the GPS.Dix.dk NTP time server. D-Link is
dedicated to remaining a good corporate and network citizen."
Since the existing products will have authorized access to the server, they're probably buying the bandwidth for him (as part of his original suggestion). And D-Link will presumably not harvest any more Stratum 1 NTP server addresses...
PS This update did occur a while back, I only noticed it now.
