I see now. You quoted a GPL fragment out of context, and from that you
concluded that A. somebody requested that a copyright owner waive his
copyright, and B. the copyright owner did so, and C. the person doing
the asking relied, to hiw own deteriment, on this waiver.

Three major problems here. First, A never happened, in the cases we are
discussing. Second, B never happened. And finally, C never happened.
