Doh, sorry!  I didn't scroll down far enough. <blush>

For what it's worth, I totally agree with you. Their business model is their 
problem, if they choose to use GPL licensed code then they must comply with all 
the obligations.

Given how easy it is to be GPL clean and still include proprietary code (using 
dynamic binary-only modules and proprietary user-land programs) I'm never quite 
sure how companies get themselves into this pickle.
