Also I presume that they would take steps to confirm your identity so that they are issuing a key to a laptop to the person that is actually suppose to have the laptop. (I don't think 'theft' would constitute 'distribution' under the GPL)
Sort of like how if you work in a corporate setting and somebody calls you up asking for (or to reset and replace) a password they 'forgot' you would want to take a bit of time to try to confirm the identity of the person on the other side of the phone before issuing the password.
