Why all the GPL FUD "jack"?
If you don't agree with the GPL, don't try to distribute any software under
it. 

simple as that.

Nothing stops you from USING gpl software even if you don't agree with the
GPL. IT IS ENTIRELY ABOUT PERMISSION TO DISTRIBUTE.

As the copyright holder can choose how his code is distributed, where's the
problem? If you disagree with it and distribute against the copyright
holder's wishes, you breach copyright.

Where's the complexity there? What is so difficult for you to grasp?
