Why don't you just distribute some modified GPLed stuff and say that you
will not supply the sources. Tell the FSF that you do so.

When you do *that* and don't have any adverse effects, you could be
considered right. Until then, you are simply a dishonest lying nimwit.
Which is, BTW, exactly what you are, Bill Weissgerber

Since not accepting the GPL you are reverted automatically to copyright
And in that case you are simply breaking the law by distributing stuff you
don't own

Now tell us that "copyright law" is not tested in courts

Gods, you are really a dishonest lying idiot
