It would not have affected the GPL.  What it would have done is caused some
works that were released under the GPL to be effectively placed in the
public domain.  It also would have resulted in a bunch of stuff that ended
up closed source being effectively public domain.  All of it would have
been available for incorporation into GPL works.  Sounds ok to me.
