What in the world are you talking about? I have never claimed any
such thing, nor would I, since it's false. The GPL does not prevent
anyone from using patented ideas in a copyrighted work.

Good. then we can stop all this software patent indemnity blather
with the GPL and go have a nice cold, ice cold beer.

The patent holder may prevent you from using the patented idea in the
work, of course. If you do choose to use a patented idea (belonging
to someone else) in the work and wish to distribute the work under
the GPL, you must arrange for everyone to have the same patent
permission that you do.
