Only if the contract terms are legally enforceable -- which in the case of the GPL they aren't.

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.

A U.S. court has *never* enforced a single term of the GPL contract
and *never* will. You're dreaming -- or hallucinating.

A winning court ruling in the hand is worth 100 losing voluntary
dismissals in the bush. ROFL and LMAO.

Keep on spinnin' Hyman -- just keep on spinnin'.
