More likely, the employer directed someone else to do so.

But if he does not distribute these copies to the employees machines,
the employees are likely to have a rather tough time using the software.
[Unless the employees don't have that kind of access, in which case it
doesn't matter what kind of license is on the software -- RPL wouldn't
make a bit of difference.]

However, given that we're not doing anything about a much more obvious
violation of the GPL, I don't think any of this conversation is really
relevant to Debian.
