Sez who? Why's that? I doubt that rjack wants money paid to anyone for
official and final invalidation of the GPL.

The courts should simply not enforce invalid contracts. LAW 101. To
date, the courts did NOT enforce the GPL. And violations flourish.

The GPL is unenforceable inspite of all those "Selling Brooklyn Bridge"
complaints from Aaron K. Williamson (AW1337) et. al. and their blog and
press release "settlements."
