You have confused which side of this argument is delusional,
I'm afraid. The SFLC files suit as if the violating party has
simply chosen to infringe the copyrights of their clients.

If you would like to see what the SFLC *really* claims, it's easy
enough - read the web site of their clients:
    Our enforcement efforts are aimed at bringing people into
    compliance with the BusyBox license.
    We don't want monetary awards, injunctions, or to generate bad
    PR for a company, unless that's the only way to get somebody that
    repeatedly ignores us to comply with the license on our code.

Are we supposed to believe the delusional rantings of GPL skeptics,
or the statements of the actual plaintiffs to the suit?
