I can ignore the GPL when it's not applicable. If I alter a
GPL-licenced program, and never distribute it to another person, the
GPL is utterly irrelevant, as it only imposes restrictions on how
GPL-licenced software is distributed. IMHO an employee doing their job
is an agent of a company, and an employee doing their job of modifying
GPL-licenced software is effectively the company modifying the
software. If the company uses the software internally, it is
effectively the same as a private individual modifying GPL software
and not distributing it.
