Dunno that you're obliged to say it. ;) I-also-ANAL, but I am a
student, which means my information is probably even shakier than
anyone else's. I only chime in because as best I understand it, once
having found a violator the rights holder must act to protect said
rights; failing to do so may be construed as similar to consent.
I-most-definitely-ANAL, but I'd look closely. I think that's what C&D
orders are all about; even if they don't stop the infringement they
put you on record as opposing it.
All in all, maybe worth passing on to relevant qualified legal counsel.
HTH. I'm not even on a windows box any more, but I monitor this list
'cause cygwin rocked my world when I really needed it.
