That's a blow to MontaVista, and rightfully so. MontaVista has done their 
best to find loopholes in the GPL and continue using their proprietary 
mindset to try and leverage $$$s out of their clients.

Not to worry, it's companies like MontaVista that have assured that the ELC 
has been a flop to date.

A word for the wise..."roll your own", and that's exactly what Sony and 
Matsushita are doing...even after investing in MontaVista's wood stove.
