I have looked at thzat page, and only found something like "40 programs bundle",
for 0,99 $.
Nothing where I can see that it is GPLed stuff.
Maybe I missed that in the thread.... did someone bought that stuff and found
Gimp, Blender, openOffice and so on on that bought CD/DVD?
Or is it just rumor?
if it's proven, that it's against GPL license,
then contacting the FSF would be good.... they will have lawyers and some
institutional power to go on with that and it might become soon a problem to
those people and ebay.
