Exactly why I think the GPL needs to address issues like this.  I've no
problem with a commercial entity using my code, or even incorporating it
into their own software...but if you're going to make a profit off of
merely redistributing someone else's work, or if your product is
basically someone else's work with a little wrapper around it, the
author should benefit.  Bottom line, open source licensing is designed
to protect the author and benefit the community - and the GPL isn't
doing a very good job at that now that redistribution is commercialized.
