But, many libraries are released under the lessor GPL which means they can be accessed and linked into propritary software and that doesn't require the accessing software to be released under the GPL. I just checked in mupdf is the full GPL license. However, they do license for commercial sofware... so for all we know bookeen has a license.
I still haven't see incontrivertable proof that bookeen has modified and distributed GPL software. Has anyone just asked bookeen about it?
