We've worked with commercial partners for many years now, including Google (Google Compute Client), Sony (PS3 client), ATI (GPU1, GPU2), and NVIDIA (GPU2). In the past, we've allowed Google and Sony to distribute FAH clients in order to try to boost the size of FAH and get more donors. We've decided to allow NVIDIA and ATI to do this as well. We hope that this will boost the use of GPU2, which is relatively small now (~10,000 clients), but we have high hopes that it could grow more (maybe to 50,000?).
To make this issue clear, we have updated the EULA on our web page and main FAQ, and we will update the EULA document in subsequent clients as appropriate.
