You will have to contact the person who is using the module without a license.  Did you make the first person accept a EULA?  If you did then you should have had a clause in there about this type of situation.  I would try and get the person that is using it without a license to pay you for the use of it.  If you have a EULA that is solid then you could sue them, but legal fees are expensive.

sorry late reply.

I gave it to other person to test out and also told him that I will release it under GPL as soon as i’m happy the code is clean and reliable.

If one actually check the code.. its a mess, tons of debuuging code etc in there.
