The GPL is a grant of IP rights established by the copyright and patent 
laws, idiot. It's a contract, retard. (The patent license is implied, 
not express.)

An intellectual property license is a contract. In re: Aimster Copyright 
Litigation, 334 F.3d 643, 644 (7th Cir. 2003) (“If a breach of contract 
(and a copyright license is just a type of contract) . . . ”); see also 
McCoy v. Mitsuboshi Cutlery, Inc., 67 F.3d 917, 920 (Fed. Cir. 1995) 
(“Whether express or implied, a license is a contract").
