Comment (by gjdfgh):

 Since this company already published a product with the license violation
 included, doesn't this mean they are required to hand over the full source
 code of the product to anyone who requests it?

 Lawyer guy with the clever job of being paid for threatening an open
 source project for protecting its rights from evil companies which don't
 give back anything, what do you say?
