I can think of a simple reason: to grant rights which the GPL doesn't
grant, in return for some cash for further development. There probably
are other valid reasons too.

[cdrecord license:]

The version of cdrecord shipped by named company was clearly marked as
modified, only you would expect a command line application to pop up a
window in everyone's face saying so. Incidentally, you're also the only
one who thinks the GPL was violated in the first place. Does that tell
you something?

And I can't help but notice that you made a special license of your own
software for someone while continuing to ask "why should there be a need
to use a non GPL variant?". Glass house, stones.
