   AFAIK, at least in the EU, I hold copyright of whatever thing my
   mind produces.

You hold copyright on any _creative_ things you produce.

   So, why distributing non-GPL code alone, which to be functional
   would need to be linked against GPLed code, should be a copyright

Because it is derived of another copyrighted work.  You are using that
work, and you must abide by that works license, and the GPL states
that `the whole work' must be under the same terms as the GPL.
