Yes, that's my favorite option. They have good experts with lots of
GPL enforcement experience.
I've been waiting with that step for so long because I wanted to give
Cary Audio a more-than-fair chance to recover without horrendous legal
cost. But in hindsight it looks like my attempts to explain the
problem over and over were just a waste of time. Cary Audio is either
evil, or very very stupid.

Nvidia's trick is that they publish only source code together with a
BLOB; the actual GPL violation (linking this into the kernel) will be
performed by the user, but since copyright law doesn't affect users,
this is not a legal problem.
(All of my computers have AMD or Intel graphics, for a reason.)

It looks like much of the DMS-500 software development was outsourced
to Hong Kong (at least the Java/Android apps).
