I don't doubt that. However, that's still your opinion rather than the
Workgroup's. I don't mean anything bad by that. Just a correction to
what was written.

I'm now sufficiently confused by CC/DRM/DReaM and others that I would
advise everyone to run away, run away from that lawyerbomb. I seem
to remember that RMS also advised people to avoid promoting CC until
they sort out what the devil they stand for. Until we see a few of
the anti-TPM zealots try to use CC to punish parallel distribution,
we probably won't know what the current licence means in practical terms.
Hope that explains,
