I have one single question... Does copyright law even applies to legal
agreements and license terms? I'm pretty sure noone can be sued for
using the terms someone used earlier, or even a modified version (as
long as one doesn't pretend the modified version is the original), or
even distributing it with some product...


P.S.: removed -project (everybody is replying to -devel) and added
-legal (they have a better background to answer that)..
P.S.2: I'm not on -legal, can you CC me on posts there?
