The part which (you claim) states that only the owner of the physical
media on which the copy is 'fixed' can become a licensee. I can see
nothing in the GPL which states that. On contrary the preamble states
that it ensures that the software is free for all users (ie those
using the program) and reads as though anyone who has access to the
program (eg to run it) can accept the licence and become a
licensee. Having become a licensee, you can then copy, modify and/or
distribute the software subject to the conditions in the licence.
