If the distributor of GPL-licensed code does not believe
that the GPL is a valid license, then on what basis is
the distribution happening? Copyright forbids it. Thus,
distribution is evidence that the distributor has read
and agreed to the terms, voluntarily, not through their
being enforced.

That's not very different from one of the cases that
has been cited here, where a patent owner was seen as
giving permission for his patent to be used when he did
not stop, and indeed worked with, the company which was
using it.
