The contract laws recognize a concept called "efficient breach"

However, copyright law provides for injunctions to prevent ongoing
infringement, so it does not matter if it would be more beneficial
for the infringers to continue infringing. They will be prevented
from doing so.
§ 502. Remedies for infringement: Injunctions (a) Any court having
jurisdiction of a civil action arising under this title may, subject
to the provisions of section 1498 of title 28, grant temporary and
final injunctions on such terms as it may deem reasonable to prevent
or restrain infringement of a copyright.
Provided infringement occurs. This is not the case with the GPL.
Since you and DAK are incapable of understanding the meaning and
operation of a "condition precedent" as used in copyright contracts,
you will forever remain confused concerning licensing fundamentals.
