Remember that the point Alfred was making is that because the software is licensed under the GPL, he is allowed to make a copy _even_ if the CD is not his property and he was acting as an agent of licensee/owner of the copy. To him, the license is a magical property attached to the software, and not an agreement between licensor and licensee.
It depends on the license. The GPL gives an explicity right for this, some other licenses may not. If I'm in the legal possession of GPLed software, maybe because my employer gave me an CD to use and install that specific program, then I'm also allowed to redistribute it. ^^ The _content_on_it_! not the acutual CD. _______________________________________________ Gnu-misc-discuss mailing list Gnuemail@example.com http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/gnu-misc-discuss
