The GPL applies to anything that counts as a derivative work, with
some explicit exceptions (mere aggregation, for example).  

The copyright law itself (as nearly every law) considers intent to be
of cardinal importance when considering cases of contributory
infringment, and since the GPL reaches just as far as copyright,
intent therefore matters in deciding where the GPL's conditions attach.
