Section 2 allows you to make copies under the terms of section 1, which
requires an appropriate license. The GPL has some specific requirements
on licenses. The work as a whole would included GPL licensed software.
And, just about everything you do with a computer involves making copies.
[Yes, I'm aware that some copyright laws make special provisions for
some of these copies -- but that's not a license issue.]
