   You are confusing legal issues.  Misquoting someone is a

   realm of slander/libel, rather than copyright.)

the confusion of legal issues is very easy to do when you lump
certain things together, it is true.

actually this discussion is not about copyright per se, but the
application of the copyright (tool) to implement various policies
(DFSG, GFDL, UFAWBA[1]).  whenever you talk about application, of
course finer discernment is no easy task.
