Re: Source code with no (explicit) licence

begin Joseph Carter quotation:

> Your gut feeling is wrong.

To reiterate:  My gut feeling is that a non-licence remains no licence.

My idle afterthought that it would (if proposed) end up in non-free is
no doubt wrong, however.  It would, as I was suggesting as the main
thrust of my argument, have no clear licence.

> Without a license, the program cannot be distributed at all.

Other than by the copyright holder, you presumably mean.

> DJB knows this.  He likes it that way, apparently.

I believe I _just_ got through saying that.
Thank you for your comments, anyway.
