The GPL is a perfectly straightforward copyright license, trivially
easy to comply with. It is only the people who want to avoid the
obligations of the GPL while still copying and distributing
GPL-covered works who claim to have any difficulty "understanding"
it. No one is forced to accept the GPL, but there is no other way to
get to copy and distribute GPL-covered works.
Sounds like a Marxist dream-come-true to me.
1) Dangle promises of copyright permissions.
2) Steal the rights of those who accept the offer.
Maybe in the Marxist land of GNU, that fraud is morally and
legally acceptable but under U.S. law it is an illegal misuse of
copyright that is strictly against public policy.
