XVID's GPL code: Stolen by Sigma Designs?

Slashdot: "The XVID team has ceased development of the XVID video codec
for the time being because they say that Sigma Designs' REALmagic MPEG-4 Video
Codec software includes their code and has claimed it as Sigma Designs' own work.
The current XVID homepage includes some binary-level comparisons." Update:
08/23 03:14 GMT by T: Apparently the folks at Sigma have seen that no good is likely
to come from this; an anonymous reader submits a link to this release on Yahoo! which says
"complete source code will be available for download starting August 23, free of charge, through
Sigma's website."
