Well, there was the GPL and no other information.
And I know, that it's based on a GPL-covered program.

Next to the GPL there was also a note, that it shouldn't be sold for 
profit - and also that doesn't fit together.

But I don't want to send their address here in publicity.

Perhaps someone from the FSFE could have an eye on the case and talk to 
them again. So please contact me in a private mail. It should be someone, 
who speaks English and German and who is able to run Windows programs.
