You do publish the code you're linking to Samba code, don't you.
You do know about the GPL (the license that Samba is under) I

I ask as I just did a google search for your product, and came
up with this :

and I don't see any mention of the GPL or releasing source
code anywhere.

Can you please give more information as to how you're using
Samba code in your product, I think we need to talk to
you about this.
