Companies can fork GPL works, but the result is still GPL'ed. That
means they're unlikely to make a huge amount of money on that single
product (but hopefully they'll profit on distributing a large collection
of well-integrated works).
The percentage of free projects that actually get forked is very small.
If one of my works was in wide enough use to warrant a well-known fork,
I'd probably be happy to have achieved that milestone.
