    [1] Even after an assignment, both the FSF and the author may be prosecuted

In GPL enforcement, if anyone is prosecuted, it would be the GPL
violator.  But normally this would be a civil suit, meaning that
nobody is prosecuted.

In a previous message, you spoke of the FSF as "defending" the author.
In a GPL enforcement action, the defendant would be the GPL violator.
The copyright holder(s), whether the FSF or the authors or whoever,
would be the plaintiff(s).

So I have a feeling we are fundamentally miscommunicating.
