Let me show how to make your own GPL:
... and modify to taste.
However, we're of course talking about Stalman's GPL, and Linus' kernel.
Linus is the primary kernel maintainer and, to say it blunt, does so in a
dictatorial manner. Of course Linus listens, but ultimately nothing gets
in the kernel (Linus' kernel) that Linus doesn't like.
It is exactly the same with the GPL. The FSF listens, but ultimately
nothing gets in that the FSF doesn't like.
