Many big companies have been bitten by this with Linux, see www.gpl-violations.org to find that prominent companies like Siemens, ASUS, Sitecom, Gigabyte and many others are affected and were sued over this (aparently?) difficult to follow requirement of the GPL.
Thas clearly marks the beginning "of-the-end" from some of those big players, where it's clear they won't be using GPL stuff for future projects.
