If EULA are contracts, what makes the GPL different from other EULA, in
your view?

It is not any different at all.  Both are contracts.

Now, what do you think happens when such a contract is breached?

IANAL, are you?

Do you think that it would matter much to you? Certainly there are many lawyers who disparage the GPL and there are at least a few who think it is a wonderful thing. Will you only listen to lawyers who agree with your emotional interests or would you change your mind if a lawyer told you that you were wrong? If a lawyer really isn't enough, would you believe a judge? The only problem there is that there are judges on both sides of the issue, too. If you ANAL, what are you ever to do?
