A U.S. court has *never* enforced a single term of the GPL contract

Thus far, when copyright infringement of GPL-covered works have been
 brought to trial,

So far, every plaintiff in a GPL lawsuit has cut and run prior to

the defendants have agreed to comply with the GPL, so no court enforcement has been needed.

and *never* will.

I agree that it's likely that compliance with the GPL will always be
 forthcoming, but you can never tell.

It is easily verfied that the term "compliance" has never been raised in
a GPL lawsuit -- must less enforced.

One hot summer's day a Fox was strolling through an orchard till he came
to a bunch of Grapes just ripening on a vine which had been trained over
a lofty branch. "Just the thing to quench my thirst," quoth he. Drawing
back a few paces, he took a run and a jump, and just missed the bunch.
Turning round again with a One, Two, Three, he jumped up, but with no
greater success. Again and again he tried after the tempting morsel, but
at last had to give it up, and walked away with his nose in the air,
saying: "I am sure they are sour."
