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.
