Back to denial already Hyman?
Please identify the section of 17 USC 106 where "causing" someone "to
license" a work conflicts with a specific exclusive right of an owner of

The GPL requires that as a condition to copy and distribute
a covered work, you must license the whole work at no charge
to all others. I have no idea what your question above even
means; the English seems not quite right. It is the copying
and distribution which is the exclusive right of the copyright
holders; granting the license is a condition of receiving
permission from the rights holders to copy and distribute.

"An unlicensed use of the copyright is not an infringement unless it
conflicts with one of the specific exclusive rights conferred by the
copyright statute.

The unlicensed use in these cases is copying and distribution,
exactly as specified in 17 USC 106. The use is unlicensed when
the copier fails to meet the conditions required by the GPL in
order for permission to copy and distribute to be granted.
