Another GNU License Question

I've got more questions about the GNU License and I couldn't find an
answer in the FAQs. I noticed the following unsettling passage in the
GNU GPL, version 3, in "Section 2: Basic Permissions":

"Those thus making or running the covered works
for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction
and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of
your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you."

Does this mean then that the GPL is telling me I must restrict my own
copyrighted material in some way? Ie. it's telling me I have to do
things with *my* stuff? What if I want to make my copyrighted material
FREE as in LIBRE so they CAN make copies of MY material WAY outside
their relationship with me? It's MY material, after all. Or am I
missing something here?
