But i really doubt it's legal to remove copyright information. Remember, 
we still own the copyright, we just permit others to use the sources as 
the license says. Which, as I understand it, implies they must not 
remove copyrights, neither from binaries nor from sources. We don't have 
access to the sources but they changed all copyright information in the 
file properties of the binaries. What they do is not just insolent (by 
not giving credit to the real creators) but also illegal.
