Sorry, my goof. I shouldn't be sloppy. It's the FSF faq. "Is making and
using multiple copies within one organization or company "distribution"?
<>  ". As I read that, it's simply saying that the "you" in the FAQ can
be a company, and as such internal distribution is just "use" and the
GPL doesn't apply.
