Are you serious?. A company with a big legal team and world wide sale
does not understand the term commercial?.
I had specifically wrote to them that the gpl allows you to write
commercial (sell / trade) software subject to the terms of the gpl,
just in case they were actually that dumb and could not read legal
docs or the dictionary.
Presuming ANYTHING about a licence is extremely dangerous. One has to
go strictly by what is written in the licence. In this case does the
notice.txt form part of the licence or not?. If they have a file
called licence.txt and within they say refer notice.txt, then
notice.txt most certainly is part of the licence.
