Each party to the GPL contract can sue for non-compliance, retard.

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").

Go contact German GPL enforcer Welte and the gang at ifross (his 
attorneys), the GPL is a contract (LizenzVERTRAG) in Germany as well.
