I don't really get the difference between GPL in Europe and GPL in the
US. It doesn't work exactly the same way in court because we have
different laws, but there is no "different intention" and we do have the
GPL licence in Europe of course (validated already in several cases in
The fact that we have a copyright system that do not need any kind of
registration does not change the fact that the GPL is a contract.
If he's doing a derivative work of a GUI licensed under GPLv2, there
isn't much chance that he'll be able to licence his program with
anything else than GPLv2 anyway.
