Another legal persons makes copies. And he is in total compliance. I 
just distribute those lawfully made copies (he doesn't impose any 
restrictions on me because the GPL doesn't require to propagate the
contract along with each copy and make me assent to the GPL). Without 
sources, any written offers, and under contractual terms requiring 
forbearance from right granted under the GPL to works embodied in my
copies. It basically turns the GPL stuff into binary only "all rights 
reserved" with contractual remedies and damages for breach of contract
that I can enforce. Wanna test it in court, dak?
