I found this one:



 "I think a web-based message board clearly reads commands
  interactively.  So, if there is such a notice, you can't remove it. But
  you could alter its form, so long as it is still appropriate."

I guess this case is difficult, since you could interpret each php
file as a program of its own, as well as the entire system as a 
program as a whole.
