That is false. Federal preemption of copyright is irrelevant with
 respect to the GPL.

Because you say it is?

So show me the relevant legal authority you rely on to make your
claim. Self serving assertions made without reference to legal
authority and without cogent argument convinces no one but yourself
and perhaps Rahul.

Put up or shut up.

The GPL is a simple copyright license granting permissions otherwise forbidden by copyright law.

It's an illegal contract giving rise to claims of promissory estoppel.
