But the requirement for a copyright notice on the homepage is a
consequence of the GPL's interactive-session clause and the
interpretation that a web session is a single execution of a program.
If that interpretation is reasonable, DFSG 10 establishes a
requirement for an initial copyright notice as unambiguously free.
