Publishing an application under GPL?

Is it possible to publish an application with CUDA support under GPL?

A short quote from the CUDA license:

Since I can’t gurantee that nobody would remove the copyright statement, it seems to me that it is not possible.

This is perfectly possible. An application using CUDA is not a ‘derived work’. It’s easy, just don’t include source code from NVidia in your project. It’s not like you need to ship the cuda header files / libraries, just make your program link against them and you’re fine.
