Mah oh man, you're really dense. Before a copy can be made, it (i.e.
future copy) must first be accompanied by a copy of the GPL? Do you have

What in the world are you talking about? In order to make and
distribute copies of GPLed works, you must include the GPL with
the copies you make and distribute. What's a future copy?

Are you trying to say that because the physical process of making
a copy may involve multiple steps, or that the final copy consists
of more than one file, this somehow invalidates the requirement?

Here's a sample book contract:
      1. The Publisher and its agents and employees will not change,
         add to, delete, abridge, or condense the text of the work or
         change its title without the express, itemized, and specific
         written consent of the author.

Do you believe that, since books are not printed in their entirety all
at once but rather in parts, the publishers are violating this section
of the contract while they are printing the books? This is taking your
wrongness to a whole new level!
