[Bf-committers] GPL or (c) infringement?

For the License diehards out here; a while ago we discovered a  
"company" reselling Blender and Gimp under its own name;


He's advertising and selling on ebay.com with this as well. Just today  
I received a mail from a victim of this spoof, telling Luxuriosity  
didn't give refunds.

Apart from infringing copyright of used images, and false claims (these  
images have been made by...), does GPL allow you to fully rebrand and  
repackage a product without crediting the origins? And if so, then how  
do copyright laws protect against such spoofs?
