It's not "yours" by any sane definition of ownership. You have a clearly defined, but very restricted, set of rights under GPL as to what you can do with it; much more restrictive than the BSD licence for example.

Not true. Anything you build or modify for your own use, you don't have to share. (Affero GPL excepted)
If you want to *distribute* products derived from or combined with GPL code, that's where the restrictions kick in.
