That's not really what it says, especially if the copy contains
modifications.  What it does say is:

     Any EXACT copies prepared in accordance with the provisions of
     this section may be leased, sold, or otherwise transferred,
     along with the copy from which such copies were prepared, ONLY
     as part of the lease, sale, or other transfer of all rights in
     the program.

     ADAPTATIONS so prepared may be transferred ONLY with the
     authorization of the copyright owner.
