Plagiarism in the Odoo App Store

I've noticed a huge amount of plagiarism in the App store with companies taking open-source AGPL-licensed modules, making a very slight modification and then republishing them as their own under a paid license.

For my own modules I wouldn't mind so much if they remained open-source under the license they were released under, but when someone clearly disregards the license and republishes under whatever EULA they want, this is not ok in my opinion.

Has anyone else noticed this with their own modules, and is there anything that Odoo SA will implement to discourage this behaviour?

Regards,

Luke
