Acknowledged. I was attempting to point out the fact that the GPL grants
rights in return for your restricting your rights in some way in return
(following some rules). The GPL does not place restrictions on fair use
but this principle could (IMO) be used to do so. 


The $70 Billion US "budget surplus" hardly offsets our $5 Trillion national
debt. The debt increased by $133 Billion in the same year we found a
"surplus". More debt is predicted for 1999. See www.concordcoalition.org .
