Err, if it's licensed under the GPL then the "end users" who receive it under 
that license can redistribute it themselves under the GPL.  Part 6 of the GPL 
v2 says:

[quote]
  6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the original 
licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and 
conditions.  You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' 
exercise of the rights granted herein. [...]
[/quote]

Of course as the copyright holder you could also do dual licensing, so I guess 
this is what you mean - correct ?

But whichever it is, once you have released something under the GPL you cannot 
prevent others from redistributing it under the GPL themselves.

cheers,
Chris
