 But can you really restrict usage of the software?
 I mean, if someone has accepted to use the software under GPL terms
 then, to him, it's GPL. Since GPL allows commercial use, that
 should be his right.

 I don't think GPL allows exceptions to the license in that something
 that's GPL suddenly changes licensing terms if it's being used
 commercially.
