Comment (by Support):

 Thanks for highlighting this error. Our Loudness Compliance products are
 released on Linux, OSX and Windows, and as you have correctly pointed out,
 an error had crept in such that we were building our Windows version with
 the wrong libraries. New Windows versions are currently being uploaded to
 our download site, and we have also verified that the Linux and OSX
 versions did not include any GPL licensed libraries.

 When you install our products, our EULA clearly states that the product
 contains FFmpeg libraries under the LGPL license, and specifically
 excludes them from any conditions relating to our EULA.
