Fortunately the terms of the GPL are legal.

Oh beautiful estoppel! Wondrous are your ways! You maketh my code
public domain! Oh fair estoppel!

There is no estoppel with respect to the GPL since the GPL clearly
spells out the requirements for allowing covered code to be copied
and distributed. That an anti-GPL crank believes the permissions
of the GPL apply while the requirements do not simply confirms
that person as a crank, but does not impact the GPL at all.
