However, as far as contract law is concerned, I'd think I could validly
offer you the privilege of making partial copies of my work, in return
for a promise not to add anything to said partial copies?
Of course whether you have accepted my offer or not would be a
somewhat open issue, but that only gives you the choice between
being sued over unauthorized copying or breach of contract.
