This rule of thumb only holds for actions that are actually protected.
Mere use of data is not protected and needs no permission (unless the
particular use can *also* be construed copying, that is).

Henning Makholm                     "However, the fact that the utterance by
                           Epimenides of that false sentence could imply the
           existence of some Cretan who is not a liar is rather unsettling."
