Uh, by comparing code passages, like one always does in a case like that? Unless the project restarted from scratch between versions, or was available under different licensing options (in which case claims of a differently licensed obtained copy might need to be examined), enough protectable material found in one version will reappear in the other version under the same protection and licensing. Copyright protection does not go away by changing a few lines, regardless of _who_ changed the lines. -- David Kastrup _______________________________________________ gnu-misc-discuss mailing list email@example.com http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/gnu-misc-discuss
