There have been scattered efforts that suggest that software that one
does not purchase, is software that is stolen, and hence illegal to use.

There are at least a dozen organizations that sell FLOSS. Some of them
do rebrand the product, and offer product support on their site, and/or
through their employees. Those that don't rebrand the product tend to
point to the program's community support, for customer support.

What clause of either the GNU GPL 2.0, or GNU GPL 3.0 do you think is
being violated by selling Xiphos?

Back in January or February I ran across a site that was selling what
appeared to be a rebranded version of Xiphos on CD.  I did not bookmark it.
