When you distribute a work under the GPL 2.0, you aren't sub-licensing. A new original license is granted by the copyright holders. By distributing copies or derivative works, you agree to the terms at a particular point in time. By violating the GPL after that time, creates an obligation not to distribute the covered work. Even if you consider and new license to be offered upon every distribution, there is nothing in the GPL that would free anyone of prior existing obligation to the copyright holder.
