Oh c'mon. "nicked the code for their own purposes" is a bit
pejorative, isn't it?

Or are you actually accusing Google of failing to comply with the
terms of the licence for the code they've used?

Otherwise I don't see the problem. Some people wrote some code and
released it under a particular licence, and some other people used the
code did precisely what they were requested to do in that licence. So


And now, for something completely different...
