I think you are comparing two different things. One is like changing a contract unilaterarily after it was signed. That's clearly illegal. Another is like installing "no trespass" signs in wrong places. It can be forbidden too, but by another law, and there is no law specifically regulating GPL-only symbols.
However, installing "no trespass" signs in improper location would cause people stop paying attention to them, and some trespasser could even argue that the trespass wasn't willful if there were some obviously wrong signs nearby.
