Go to doctor, retard dak.

Hey Mike, consolidated know-how on escaping the GPL under 17 USC 109 
and 117 can be found in "Distributing GPL software" thread on debian-

and etc. (read the entire thread).

But regarding the last link above: note that 17 USC 117 does allow 
making new copies and distribution of those additional copies. 

See also

regarding enforcablity of restrictions without manifestation of 
assent. I like: "From the user's vantage point, SmartDownload 
could be analogized to a free neighborhood newspaper, readily 
obtained from a sidewalk box or supermarket counter without any 
exchange with a seller or vender. It is there for the taking. "
