The 11C, 12C, 15C, and 16C microcode files that were formerly supplied 
with Nonpareil were NOT covered by the GPL.  They were included in the 
Nonpareil distribution by mistake, and are no longer included.

I am aware of one commercial application using the 12C microcode from 
Nonpareil, and it is licensed.  I'd be interested in hearing about any 
others.  If they are really using the 12C microcode from Nonpareil, they 
are infringing the copyright.

Best regards,
