Unless.....

Is Wallace implying that the GPL is somehow illegal because it places 
restrictions on TRUE "non-parties" because it says they can't modify and 
distribute the code unless they accept it's terms?

Surely not.  MS says you can't even USE their software (much less modify and 
distribute it) unless you agree to the terms of the license, while the GPL 
doesn't have that restriction, making MS's license more restrictive to 
"non-parties" in that respect.
