No, Andreas. In this case the issue has arrisen because someone has
decided by themselves to make other peoples copyright material
available under a new license of their choosing without discussion
with the copyright holders.

This is copyright infringement.

The situation would be just the same if someone picked up your code
and made it available under a license that suited them.  I doubt you'd
like it.

The nature of the licenses is nothing to do with this particular mess.
