This time, by the vendor withdrawing the product:

A Wii game manufactured by subcontractors for Atari contains a
GPLed game engine, the game was distributed without complying
with the GPL, and apparently Nintendo requires a non-disclosure
agreement from their game makers which prohibits the distribution
of sources. Atari has agreed to stop selling the game after a
period of time, to destroy the remaining stock, and to make a
"significant" donation to the FSF.

Once again, we have a demonstration that real companies act as
if the GPL works exactly the way it claims to.
