To distribute further copies of your copy, not to receive a copy in the
first place.  You don't need a licence to receive and use a copy.

A can charge B for a copy of GNU Emacs, but he can't charge B for the
right to give a copy to C.

But of course Terekhov knows this, he is just trying to muddy the waters.
