The above rules pertain specifically to distribution, correct?
I ask because the first rule does not seem to apply when you are
extracting a contained item from a container: each item is only
governed by its respective license. Thus, the licenses of all other
items are ignored and there is no intersection of permissions to be
Likewise, when doing something to an extracted item, you only need
to obey its respective license. Thus, the licenses of all other
items are ignored and there is no sum of restrictions to be considered.
Thanks for your consideration.
