The problem with LinuxSampler license has been discused many times, it
is a bit more complex that that. The problem is that adding an
additional restriction to the GPL makes the license self contradictory
and the software becomes "undistributable" (that's why Debian removed it
also from its non-free repository). It is explained in the official GPL
FAQ:

Q: I'd like to license my code under the GPL, but I'd also like to
make it clear that it can't be used for military and/or commercial
uses. Can I do this?

A: No, because those two goals contradict each other. The GNU GPL
is designed specifically to prevent the addition of further
restrictions [...]

They should have chosen a proprietary license, free for no commercial,
to achive what they want while avoidind the GPL in their code. Of course
many people (me included) would prefer it to be pure GPL, but a
proprietary license would be much better that the current situation.
