Anyone *can* change the code.  But it's licensed software, just like
most other software.  The difference is that the GPL gives you rights
that you don't have for other non-open software.  However, in both cases,
you have to be sure that you don't violate the terms of the license.

If you're unclear as to whether what you propose to do will violate the
license, I'd suggest consulting an attorney: nobody on this list (or any
other) should be providing you legal advice.
