So maybe the choice of GPLv2 is not compatible with the plans we have. A BSD license may, though, but it'll take a lot more than $10k.

Badmouthing does not help. Especially not your own reputation.

Have a look at what Trolltech does with QT.

Dual licenses - GPL and commercial.

In a way it is better commercially for the current license holders as they essentially have a monopoly on the commercial exploitation of the product.
