A promise on my part to forbear from distribution right under first sale and instead do what you decree is a covenant, not a condition. And it has really nothing to do with copyright. Breach of contract is the only nonfrivolous claim you can make (provided that I have fulfilled the real conditions and created authorized copies). ----- Adobe asserts that its license defines the relationship between Adobe and any third-party such that a breach of the license constitutes copyright infringement. This assertion is not accurate because copyright law in fact provides certain rights to owners of a particular copy. This grant of rights is independent from any purported grant of rights from Adobe. The Adobe license compels third-parties to relinquish rights that the third-parties enjoy under copyright law. ----- s/Adobe/FSF regards, alexander. _______________________________________________ Gnu-misc-discuss mailing list Gnuemail@example.com http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/gnu-misc-discuss
