Most likely the fact that the RSAREF 2.x licence is a lot more liberal
about commercial use. (read it yourself, but to sum it up it does allow
limited commercial use).
This means that one can still use RIPEM and TIS/PEM for many
commercial applications. With PGP one would have to buy a licence
(presumably from ViaCrypt).
e.g. communications between employees of a company about business
