It is hard to understand just what you are getting at here.

There are people who claim that distributing GPLed code without
following the GPL's requirements is not copyright infringement.
(Some allow that it might be a contract dispute, others that it
is entirely permissible.) The fact that industry generally acts
as if the GPL works as intended will be used as evidence to the
contrary if one of those people actually winds up in court. This
sort of evidence was presented in the JMRI appeal.
