That would only get him an injunction against the FSF.  The GPL is a model
license.  When I license a work of mine to you under the GPL only you and I
are involved.  The fact that the license I grant you is word for word
identical to the one the FSF uses for gcc is irrelevant.  They are two
seperate licenses.
