Re: Mass bug filing: Cryptographic protection against modification

The Berne Convention (including its revision) predates software as a
commercial good.  It presents a non-exhaustive list of things that
should be protected, and it only sets a minimum standard.  This means
that you can use the Convention that something is indeed
copyrightable, but you cannot tell whether it is NOT copyrightable in
all countries of the Union.  The Convention simply does not answer
that question.
