Please quote all relevant legislation in any jurisdiction ..

But in the context of this thread, the downloading is expressly permitted and the GPL allows for your unfettered personal use of both the binary image and the source code .. That seems to be a straightforward way of defeating at least one of the distribution caveats contained in the GPL.
