Hi Max,

thank you very much for all your hard work on MPD over the many, many
years (and the same goes for everyone else involved). I also really
appreciate your insistence on GPL compliance. The GPL explicitly states
"[...] by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on
the Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License [...] and all
its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the
Program or works based on it". What Mr. Wright doesn't seem to
understand, is that he already violated any third party agreements. The
only question is, whether a judge forces him to give you the sources or
if he does it on his own. This verdict against Skype Technologies might
be of interest (German):
another good source is http://gpl-violations.org/faq/violation-faq/

Maybe he also confuses the license with the GPLv3, which gives a grace
period of 60 days upon notice (although an explicit termination of the
license by the copyright holders is obviously valid as well).

No matter, how thing will develop further, I just wanted to say thank
you and you are really amazing.

Kind regards,
