The GPL does not contain any "if you distribute to anyone you must
distribute to the author" clause.

Such a clause would not be DFSG-free according to the most common
interpretation of the DFSG.

Henning Makholm                              "I consider the presence of the
                                      universe to be a miracle. The universe
