Hi Tim,
this is sad news. But not that odd. A lot of interesting projects 
developed inside universities are becoming commercial products. 
Especially in the dsp field.

IIRC, the authors are from Italy. Can you confirm this?

If this is the case, there's a very high chance that they're from a 
public university. I believe that the results of a research developed 
inside a public university should be published as open source. But, 
again, nothing surprises me these days. :-(
