Right, that's why this is all OT. ;)

What I'm saying is why "authors' rights" is a sucky concept, and how
(if it were freely extended to software) it would kill the possibility
of free software.

It already kills "free architecture", and "free painting".  Marcel
Duchamp, is he no longer the hero of French artists?
