Companies are ignoring the GPL left and right altogether.

There is a qualitative difference between ignoring the GPL
out of laziness, stupidity, or error and actively deciding
that the GPL does not apply in some circumstance and then
distributing without obeying its constraints.

All the enforcement activities so far have targeted the
former sort, which is why the cases result in settlements
where they make the GPLed sources available without putting
up any resistance.

I'm not aware of any instances of the latter. Are you?
