Seconded. It's always been held that if someone wants to combine their proprietary code with GPL'd code in-house, without distributing it to anyone else, this is just fine. It's their codebase, and they can do what they like with it.. It's only when they go to distribute other people's code that they need to worry about the license.
The definition of 'distribute' has gotten mightily strained lately, between this and the nonsense with Microsoft's coupons.
