Yes, I'm not a lawyer. Do not rely on anything I say as a legal opinion.
Even if I *were* a lawyer, my postings here would not constitute legal
advice. Please, I don't want to be sued for practicing law without a
license! I'm just describing what little I've learned, which is far more
than I should have to know under a sane copyright law system. :-/
Actually, you're the frickin' DPL. Go get a real legal opinion already.
Call SPI's lawyer. I will be extremely surprised if he says "Yeah, sure,
this stuff is totally legal to distribute", but who knows?
