This is the SFLC's interpretation of GPLv2, not words from GPLv2 itself.
They're not necessarily correct; the fact that GPLv3 does have automatic
reinstatement argues against that intent, which matches what I said about

Even if they are correct, it's still up to the rights holders to do
something about it if they haven't been asked.
