The GPL is a license, it grants a broad but limited set of rights with some conditions (just read it, there are translations in many languages and a detailed FAQ, will do a better job explaining it that I could ever do), copyright/ownership is retained by the author (which, in the case of work-for-hire, is generally the person doing the hiring - as the actual author works "through" them - same as if you work for a normal company as a software developer, everything you do for the company is owned by them).
