Two other sections of the gpl may apply(first paragraph section 3):

"Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years"


"Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to 
distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only 
for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in 
object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with 
Subsection b above.)"


no amount of fear can stop the rise of free media, or free software (they are the same, after all)
