Re: funding & viability questions of GPL enforcement.

There are salient discrepancies in copylefting collective work —as there are
mismatches in working as a free software developer in a western economic model.
 Let me just say that this discussion, working out the legal details of the
problem, is very interesting.  I guess that's how every inch of freedom has to
be conquered, and I'm delighted that this list allows me to witness it.

Please go ahead.

May I ask, in passing, why Debian (for packages like apt, say) as well as Linux
did not switch to GPLv3?  Would such switch ease enforcement?
