Everyone working with GPLed code, in our case the Linux kernel which is under the GPLv2, needs to understand how the licence affects them, and the work they put out on XDA developers, to aid understanding a good write up of this issues has gone up on the portal, you can read it here;

XDA-Developers and the GPL

GPL compliance is taken very seriously on XDA, but at the same time I remind people to report anything via the proper channels rather than confronting anyone in public, which always does more harm than good.

A note to ROM developers:
Using a non GPL compliant kernel makes your ROM non compliant and subject to removal.
If you are using another developers kernel, linking to that kernels thread will make you GPL compliant (assuming that the kernel in question is compliant)
