Is Red Hat violating the GPL?

[ Thanks to Sam

“Right from the time it was set up in the early 1990s,
Red Hat has always been some kind of a beacon to the GNU/Linux
community.

“There have been peaks and troughs, times when the community has
been furious with Red Hat and others when the people have drowned
the company in praise. There have been times when Red Hat has taken
a wrong fork in the road, times when it has chosen the right
strategy.

“But never in this entire period has Red Hat ever been accused
of forgetting its roots – that has been the company’s strong point.
It has always supported the upstream projects from which it uses
software, contributed to every possible FOSS-related cause, and has
still managed to keep the market happy when it comes to reporting
time.”
