This is why large organizations (the ones with deep pockets, worth suing) (a) require their programmers to document any open-source libraries that they use, (b) use software, updated regularly, that scans the source code and ensures that no libraries with toxic licenses are used, and (c) have lawyers that vet the licenses of any libraries.

For example, if you are writing proprietary software, any GPL source code is toxic - including it in your source code base would require you to publish the source code of your proprietary package.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
