As a matter of interest -- if a developer discovers that a company are bundling their open-source licensed software, and they maintain copyright on that code, is it possible for them to *withdraw* that company's permission to distribute that code?
AFAIK, the copyright holder on the code still maintains the right to make the terms; although on the other hand, they would have already given a right to use it through the open-source license, regardless of whether or not the licensee is busy attempting to destroy that license directly at the same time. ;)
