Doesn't it bother you that you keep calling people "stupid" and "moron"
that say nothing different from what you keep blasting your fanfares
about?  It does not make you look particularly clever, and you don't
even realize how stupid you act.

A "pooling license" in the legal sense would create one legal ownership
(whether by a single entity or as explicit joint ownership to the whole
product).  The GPL does not do that.  It creates sort of a social
equivalent to it, but authors retain individual copyright to individual
portions unless assigning them.
