Submission + - GPL click-through licenses?

Kuciwalker writes: It seems that every other open-source program I download includes the GPL as a click-through license during the install. What's the point of this? If the GPL is a distribution, not use license then I don't do anything by agreeing to it during installation. Are we just so acclimated to clicking "yes" to an EULA, or are there valid legal reasons it's put there?

Almost anything derogatory you could say about today's software design would be accurate. -- K.E. Iverson
