Try reading sec. 7 of the GPL sometime.

Section 7 (of GPLv2) says that if the people to whom you would
distribute software under the GPL will not be able to exercise
their four freedoms due to patent or other legal restrictions,
then you may not distribute the software to them under the GPL.

Why do you think this means that anyone is trying to control
software patents that they don't own?
