Yup. For a lot of people it's not practical to write a custom license
for a package. The GPL is a good license for a lot of situations, and
it's been thoroughly reviewed by lawyers already, so a lot of people
just adopt it as-is. Unfortunately, a lot of people adopt it without
fully understanding it. That doesn't mean that you can ignore it
because it's inconvenent.

No, but one example is enough to explain the GPL.
