Microsoft admits using gplv2 code in the Windows 7 usb / dvd download tool. The company from Redmond will release the source of the tool as stated by the gplv2 license.
Microsoft says the source code is not used intentionally, according to
the Technet community over at Microsoft, the company that developed the
download tool has used gplv 2 released code. The hired company didn't
inform Microsoft about this small fact. Microsoft offered her users the
possibility to copy the Windows 7 iso to a bootable usb stick.
