You haven't *released* anything which uses libpurple, have you?  If
so, you are in clear violations of the terms of the GPL, unless you
have made libpurple available.


The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
