As usual, that is irrelevant to the operation of the GPL, which
is a license grant from the copyright holders to people who wish
to copy and distribute the covered works. The only person who has
any obligations imposed upon himself is the person doing the
copying and distributing, who is one of the two parties to the
GPL, the other being the copyright holder.

There weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeent U.S. contract law along with
the goalposts.
