Summary of why the reporting on this story is mostly bogus here:
That would not be the effect of invalidating the GPL. The alternative to accepting the license is that you are not allowed to redistribute the product at all. Something you would know if you were familiar with this thing called "copyright".

I'm pretty sure Yoko Ono did this already, in "Bottoms".
