Apparently even shareware authors disrespect the GPL

I just received an email claiming that there is a proprietary shareware program called "DVDxDV" sold for USD 80. The author of the email claims that DVDxDV includes code from the GPL licensed liba52 project (formerly known as ac3dec).

Maybe I'll find some time to investigate soon...
