Re: Freeness of licence for wwwcount?
You are confusing limited fair use rights (which only exist in some
jurisdictions) with substantial rights to copy and modify a work.
WelltThat may be true, but in the US one cannot commit copyright infringment
by simply modifying a tangible copy of a work, only by copying it. (After
all, if you bought the book, why should the author be aple to prevent you
from annotating it? Fist sale should also allow you to sell your commented
copy.) Also in general (classical copyright law) there are no real
restrictions on private copying, except in the case where you dispose of the
original. In that case you must dispose of the copies in the exact same way,
or destroy said copies.
