And if anybody wonders about the wikipedia link given in defense, it clearly contradicts the claims made by the e2b author:

For sales or distribution, the entire source code need to be made available to end users, including any code changes and additions—in that case, copyleft is applied to ensure that end users retain the freedoms defined above.

But of course, wikiepdia doesn't own the works nor does it make the rules, so the final arbiter is the licensed of the software, although wikipedia does a good summary.

Neither wikipedia nor the GPL license itself is hard to understand - both are written in plain english. Following it is not hard, and clearly is the morally right thing to do.
