There are two other reasons why it might not matter:
1. "I know I'm breaking the GPL by integrating readline with Python
in my RedHat 7.5 distribution. However, since Python is free
software, I doubt the authors of the GPL will sue me - especially
as the FSF is the author of readline."
2. "I know he thinks I'm infringing his copyright, but I doubt that
this claim will stand a court trial - as it's only grounds is the
choice of law clause."
