In other words; it doesn't appear that your patent grant is actually GPL-compliant. It's appears to be a kind of "crayon license", in which the terms of the GPL are slightly modified. (see opensource.stackexchange.com/questions/1445/…)

Your patent grant states "Businesses and enterprises that wish to incorporate NTRU cryptography into proprietary appliances or other commercial software products for re-distribution must have a commercial license. Commercial licenses are available using flexible licensing terms on a one time per product fee or running royalty. For details please refer to COMMERCIAL LICENSE.doc included in this distribution." -- The GPL doesn't explicitly exclude commercial use, but states that anyone redistributing GPLd code must release their own work under the GPL.

@Rob Z - European governments seem better at it than the USA. Look at WikiLeaks for an example, and that's not even the beginning. The National Institute of Health also lost sensitive data washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/03/23/… on a laptop, because it was not encrypted. Our government has lost its ability to keep secrets in the digital era.
