This is generally correct. Since those creators of derivative
works do not have the right to create them without permission
of the rights holders, caviling at the restrictions is pointless.
The restrictions are known, and if they are not acceptable to the
author who wishes to create a derivative work, then he should not
create that work.

But who said that such intent will be enforced in a
capitalist legal system court?

It is copyright law which is being enforced.
