We donate to the open source projects we use, but we're damn sure not going to allow anyone to redistribute our code simply because we included a GPL piece in it. The GPL is holding back a lot of very good projects from achieving commercial success.
Then use another license. It's not as if there aren't plenty to choose from.
You can't use another license if the code used in your project is GPL code. You are forced to use GPL as your license by including GPL code so really, they have to find other code to reuse or re-invent the wheel themselves.
My point was exactly that -- find code that uses another license, but it was late, and I did not make my point clearly. D'oh!
