I suspect that in the cases you are talking about, there is a key
difference: the work the company is distributing is a derivative work of
a GPL work copyrighted by another party, so that party can sue the
company for copyright infringement. But in the original case in this
thread, IguanaWorks is (we think) the sole copyright holder of the work
it is distributing.
There is a difference in those two cases, as it is simpler for a
copyright holder to go after an infringer, but I suspect from a contract
perspective, the claim is equally valid.
