It is sort of cutting their own throat, though. If something has no commercial value, being free as in beer, any case asking for monetary damages for violating its copyright could simply result in a summary judgement for zero compensation.

The infringers would still be enjoined from creating further copies,
which would be fine from a GPL enforcement point of view. I think the
FSF might consider the loss of monetary damages for themselves to be
a fair trade.
