The license terms of the GPL are perfectly legal, and
are assumed voluntarily by anyone who chooses to copy
and distribute GPL-covered works. There is no other
permission available to copy and distribute such works,
so anyone who does so without honoring the terms of the
GPL will have the terms of copyright infringement legally
enforced against them.
