So, I assume that if a work which has artistic or literary value is
licensed under the GPL, version 2, people living outside common-law
countries can't modify and distribute because of:

    7. [...] If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously
       your obligations under this License and any other pertinent
       obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the
       Program at all.


/me wonders if there are more countries besides his own that need to be
no longer considered part of the free world. :-D
