You omit the third and only responsible action if you believe that you are 
releasing private intellectual property not covered by the GPL:

3.  Do not release anything at all.

If you don't believe that you have the right to that intellectual property 
through the GPL, you have no business releasing it in any form whatsoever.

This is why the GPL is so powerful.  Once you release something under the 
GPL, you cannot take it back.  That is why software companies have to be 
so careful taking contributions.  The GPL is rather insidious, and I for 
one think that is a good thing.
