Some would argue that you are wrong.  If you are distributing GPL code as a
substantial part of your own product, the GPL license must be applied to your
code as well.  If it was only LGPL, you might have a better chance, unless
you're also "deriving" from it, in which case, the derivation is subject
to the LGPL.

Welcome to the world of viral licenses.
