Non-commercial use IS a common scope-of-use limitation

The patent holder limited the manufacturer to selling the amplifiers to non-commercial users. When the manufacturer sold
them to commercial users, those users did not acquire the
patent-exhaustion rights the non-commercial buyers got.

The GPL licenses copying and distribution only if the work as a
whole is distributed as specified by the GPL. Otherwise there is
no legal right to do so, and doing it anyway is infringement on
the rights of the copyright holder.

How many times do you have to be told that the Copyright Act
does not grant an *EXCLUSIVE RIGHT* to control the distribution
of a derivative work "as a whole"? Ten? One Hundred? One thousand?

Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez you are dense Hyman.
