The same old story, if anybody's interested.
Tried to email them via the contact form - haven't heard back.
They are distributing the DLL without sources; that's a violation of the GPL.
They could only get an exemption using the Red Hat buy-out license option but
based on dll-files site disclaimer <http://www.dll-files.com/disclaimer.shtml>
I would be very surprised to find out they have such a license.
