 But I don't see the point in that you need the right to modify any
Shakespeare writing to be able to distribute it. Of course I agree that
documentation for software is different, as it's nice to be able to
start from the docs of the original source to document your changes. But
IMHO direct rules applied to software are not always good for
documentation (as it's demonstrated when you try to apply GPL directly
to documentation, ... or images, or sounds)
