My understanding is that the FSF won't (as a general rule) directly
take legal action against GPL violators for code it does not own.

That's not to say they won't give legal advice/support (as mentioned
in the docs, they did provide us legal services in our license
transition).

The thing with the (A)GPL is that it gives us a fairly effective club
against violators, as the basic tenets of the license have previously
been demonstrated in court.
