[Speex-dev] Speex on DSPic, violation of license?

The whole deal of using the new BSD license for libraries like Speex's
is to allow companies to release commercial source-closed
applications/devices.  This to allow wider spread of the formats.

Unless they are using the command line tools (e.g. encoder), which are
not under BSD but LGPL.  In that case, they should provide the source
code for all changes they make to the command line tool, but not to
their chip.

As such what they are doing is legal and not a violation of the Speex
license, unless I'm not aware of something.
