Sounds logical, but i haven't seen any individual(again to the best of my
knowledge) doing a solo defense of his GPL'd code.

That's generally the way it has been. Either the incident has been reported
to FSF(anonymously or otherwise) and FSF alone or FSF and the entity therein
have taken the violator to book. An interesting point however is that the
first contact is made discretely to the violator informing of the violation,
then helping out with correcting the situation. If however the entity
refuses to co-operate then matter goes into arbitration or eventually
