When I read this on here it surprised me. Enough to go "Wow that's so  
blatantly against the gpl, how are they getting away with it?". So I looked  
at the page. And.. that's not what it says at all! It could not even  
remotely be interpreted to say that. As some random third party, normally I  
wouldn't reply. But that's just rude to post such lies here in public. You  
obviously have some hidden agenda, and are trying to make it look bad.
