http://gpl-violations.org/faq/legal-faq.html has an interesting point of
view that confirms this:

«When we started enforcing the GPL, we tried it by sending e-mails,
faxes and letters ourselves, rather than going through lawyers. However,
those letters were simply ignored in almost all cases.

Therefore, it is our experience that trying informal means of
communication is not worth the effort, especially since it reduces the
amount of time we have for applying to a preliminary injunction (in
Germany), and therefore puts us into a worse position.

Formal warning notices sent through our lawyers always tend to draw
attention at the appropriate management level, and therefore tend to be
addressed with the required seriousness for a major copyright
