Interesting. I really hadn't thought about that and my attempts to digest the implications on the fly are making my head hurt. I can't resolve the problems introduced by first sale without either making the user of GPL'd code a non owner or deciding that users really can transfer their copies, no matter what the GPL says. Gotta think about this. Kinda makes my whole argument moot if GPL users are really licensees. <g> Isaac </quote> regards, alexander. _______________________________________________ Gnu-misc-discuss mailing list Gnufirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/gnu-misc-discuss
