You seem to have left out the text which is common to these three

This text says "...and copy and distribute such modifications or work
under the terms of Section 1 above..."

Section 1 says "...provided that you conspicuously and appropriately
publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice..."

The only basis I can see for saying that this doesn't require modified
copies be licensed appropriately involves a definition of "and" which
is peculiar to digital logic (as opposed to law or common english).
