I'd suggest not playing junior lawyer. The GPL is a contract and
there have been successful cases to enforce it. Nobody has any
inherent right to use GPL'ed software (or any other software not
released into the public domain) so if you don't like the terms, don't
I am not crazy about the GPL and one of the things I like about
FreeBSD is that most of it has much more reasonable licenses.
