Ok. Think of two copies. Try to understand that I've downloaded both 
copies. Downloaded two times. And I didn't click on any "I agree". 
As for additional copies of these two copies (apart from 17 USC 117) 
that I can as well make pursuant to the GPL, they also fall under 17 
USC 109 because they are authorized and only contractual covenant
(restriction) can interfere with my right to distribute those copies 
as I see fit. Everyone who is neither blind nor an idiot knows for 
certain that the GPL is a *LICENSE NOT A CONTRACT* -- Richard 
Stallman has clarified that fact at least a hundred times.

Hey, you are as "malice" as Mini Me of Doctor Evil 
(except that you are a Mini Me of RMS). Translation: you both are
so amusingly insane that it is really fascinating.
