Thank you.  Really, I wasn't going to spend time running through the
USA Copyright Act trying to find specific authorisation in it for
putting works out in public without selling or leasing them -- as
plainly that would not be necessary for it to apply subject to the
copyright regime --  but it's good to hear that such wording is
(apparently) actually in there.

Cheers,                                         kill -9 them all.
