Interesting question.
I suspect there a lot of bits of commercial LD things.
For example, one we did a while ago for the British Museum:
http://www.britishmuseum.org/research/search_the_collection_database/search_object_details.aspx?objectid=117631&partid=1&searchText=The+Rosetta+Stone&numpages=10&orig=%2fresearch%2fsearch_the_collection_database.aspx&currentPage=1
Look at the "Conservation" and "Search" tabs - they are the result of making a query from the object ID to a sameAs store and then SPARQL queries about the URIs returned.
Been running for a couple of years now, updating from the BM DBs once a month.

Not an obvious commercial LD application, but very much commercial, LD and an application of LD technology.

Similarly, the home pages at ECS in Southampton use LD to give the "Gary works with" stuff on http://www.ecs.soton.ac.uk/people/gbw
And the Related people and Publications on things like http://data.dev8d.org/2012/programme/?person=adrianstevenson come from the same source.

If you just go looking for Linked Data applications you might miss this sort of thing.
By the way, See UK (http://apps.seme4.com/see-uk/) is very much Linked Data from multiple sources, although I haven't got round to putting it on the pages.

I look forward to seeing the report of your results.
Best
Hugh
