The statement from the GPL quoted above is not a general truth.
If you accept the GPL, then you agree to that passage and so
you accept the GPL's terms. But that's kind of circular.

If I copy a GPL-licensed work and utterly ignore whatever the
GPL says, how is a statement *in the GPL* going to change
my legal position?
