GPL compliance is pretty basic, IMHO. If you can't meet the obligations of the license, you can't distribute your product. That's sort of important to your business model, I would think.

And...? If you're selling a product based on GPL code, then you should re-distribute the same code under the same license. If you're selling it _without_ the source code, then you're violating the GPL.
It takes less than 5 minutes to submit a request to http://gpl-violations.org/, and afaik Germany is already a proven country for the validity of the GPL.
Where can we find the source code? ;)
Cheers
