I believe they're only in violation if they don't offer their source code
with a GPL license after you buy it. I don't think charging $33 for a
download would be a violation.

I can't see anything about the license terms on their site, but if they
aren't distributing their module under the GPL, then in that case I think it
would be a violation.
