People like this pop up on the net and/or ebay now and then. What bothers
me more about people like this is when they try and rebrand a program, or
try and hide the original name/source of the program (sometimes to almost
claim it as their own creation). Not much you can do about them other than
try and get them on violation of the GPL.
The image on the listings says they can provide a copy of the "GNU GLP
License" on request. They couldn't get the name of the license correct in
their listings. The license should be included as part of the installation
of the software. If they think the license is what must be made available
on request, they may not realize its the source code they must make
available. Ask them if the source code is included or if they provide a
pointer to it for the package being sold (along with all the other dozen or
so packagse included on the CD).
