Nonsense (if you mean distribution of "copies" [17 USC 101]; not
licensing exclusive rights to original and derivative "works"...
which must be done under the terms of the GPL and only the GPL;
compilation-vs-derivative distinction aside for a moment). Being
a mere copyright license (not a contract), the GPL can't override
the first sale [17 USC 109].
