But what you (or I) believe is only tangentially relevant, because we
don't get to make the decision. This is a grey area, and therefore when
try to give "the" answer to the question we're simply gambling on the
outcome of a court case that may never even happen. So myfile.c *could*
be infringing in the sense that that's one of the possible decisions
that a judge could make. Saying you disagree with that isn't the same
as saying that you think I'm wrong.
