Hey dak, how come that the FSF claimed in court that the GPL is NOT A
POOLING LICENSE (and is merely "a vertical agreement between the
licensee and the licensor of the underlying software" instead)?
Because the pool of software created is an effect of
widespread use of the GPL. The GPL itself, however,
is not a pooling license. There is a difference between
the stated properties of the license and the emergent
properties of the system which it engenders.
