GPL Violation in Windows 7
 
It has been confirmed that a USB/DVD tool in Windows used GPL code without releasing it under the GPL License. Now, Microsoft has agreed to release that tool's source code unders GPLv2.

Hmmm. Somethings MS cannot stop being taken from Open Source.

Yes. MS really cannot cope up with the speed of the developers' strength of FOSS community.

I think taking the software down is a very boding/bodeable/bodeful/whatever thing to do. I wouldn't expect anything else unless they had concrete proof that there was absolutely no chance at all that there was even the remote possibility of a GPL violation.
