You can't exactly admit the mistake, plan to fix the issue and move on without complying to the source code request. Key developer is rather upset with Cary Audio's massive screw up, their naive response and with their facebook updates promoting a product that violates GPL could mean you really need to install the

I'm guessing option 2 will require everything they do to be available for modifications and probably will require DRM hooks to be removed.
I wonder if future versions of MPD will be GPLv3 only license, it less friendly for commercial products but would be more in tune with the open source community concerns with DRM.
