Technocrat.net: BeOS Boo-Boo: GPL violated, They’ll Fix It.

Be has already contacted me and promised to fix this

out what can go wrong when you use other people’s software without
checking the licenses….

“What is happening here legally? I now have to sign a relase for
them, because the software is already in distribution. I’ll sign
it, but you don’t want to get your company in this position
unnecessarily. Be is going to be a lot more careful about this now,
and your company should, too, if you are embedding other people’s
software in your product.”
