The SFLC would actually be a even more profitable business if the GPL
was unenforacble, they would sue anyone who distributes GPL software,
since if the license is indeed invalid, you fall back on default
copyright law, which is very restrictive.

Dear Alfred,

May I suggest that you google [ "promissory estoppel"  "detrimental reliance" ]?
