The makers of the software having the right to release their software 
with the license they want...

You could think of a GPL license for use with GPL software, e.g. in 
Linux and another license for the use with proprietary software e.g. Mac 
and Windows. Didn't have Qt something like this... (they changed it to 
LGPL recently btw).

They problem with GPL software, it's hard to make money with the 
software itself. If you want it, you got build payed services around it...
