To follow up with the facts, from the FSF itself:



The GNU GPL does not give users permission to attach other licenses to
the program. But the copyright holder for a program can release it under
several different licenses in parallel. One of them may be the GNU GPL.


Thus if you obtain code under the GPL you are stuck with the GPL, unless
of course you are the copyright holder.
