Looking back at the thread, I see that I was insufficiently verbose in my


When I said "no" as in "no, I don't see the ambiguity", I failed to clarify
that I meant there is no ambiguity because the wording is unambiguously free
to anyone familiar with ordinary legal language - not that it's
unambiguously non-free, as Ben Finney seems to maintain.  Greg Harris has it
right, and Ben Finney as usual is coming up with absurd constructivist
non-free readings of licenses.
