[Rd] Possible GPL Violation

Hi All,  

I was cruising around today, and came across a company (ZumaStat) that adds additional statistics functionality to SPSS.  

>From the Website:

http://www.zumastat.com/robust_statistics.htm  

"ZumaStat provides a user friendly interface to access powerful statistical programs on robust statistics that are available in the computer package called R, which is available free. Most of the R functions were written by Professor Rand Wilcox of the University of Southern California and are described in his three books:"  

It seems unlikely that the functionality of this program can be separated from the R-packages upon which it relies, thus making them one work subject to GPL. Does anyone have any experience with this software/company? Any thoughts?    

Ian
