	I appreciate you disclose the potential source of bias up
 front. However, if the license state ``you can freely distribyute'',
 buyt they say prvately you should not, or we shall take the whole
 ball of wax and walk away, are they truly not lying?

	a) a license change can not do away with fair use, it takes an
    act of congress, and perhaps a constitutional amendment to that
    here in the US. 

        b) bullshit. If that is what they wanted, they could have said
           so in the license.

 Ove> But if you really want to commit such controversy

	Commit a contoversy? What controversy? One is merely folowing
 the license on the software. 

 Luck, that's when preparation and opportunity meet. P.E. Trudeau
