The GPLv3 is intended to prevent the results from being restricted in
their usage.

For web services this doesn't work so well. You can restrict access to
the source code quite happily under the GPLv3 as users of the software
do not "receive" it.

So either way, the examples being GPL v3 isn't a problem.
