Uh retard Khlmann.

"If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access
to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy
the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source
code, even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source
along with the object code.

When that was written in 1991, Internet distribution of software was the
exception, not the rule. Some FTP sites existed, but generally software
was sent on magnetic tape or CDs. GPLv2 therefore mostly assumed that
binary distribution happened on some physical media. By contrast, GPLv3
§ 6(d) explicitly gives an option for this practice that the community
has historically considered GPLv2-compliant. "

"Convey the object code by offering access from a designated place
(gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
further charge. You need not require recipients to copy the
Corresponding Source along with the object code.

"Thus, you may fulfill your source-provision obligations by providing
the source code in the same way and from the same location. "


P.S. "It is just like a suit to enforce a copyright license, which
arises under state law rather than under the Copyright Act. "

P.P.S. "the registered work is a compilation"

(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can 
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards 
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
