Would the GNU GPL be a 'better' license if it were NC?
Why or why not?
Is there really any difference between code and art?
Consider the case of a computer game that generates
it's artwork dynamically, using algorithms written in c.
What about a game that generates the music within
that game using code written by the author?
Why is code not considered art, and if it *IS* art, then
why does the GNU GPL not require attribution, and why
does the GNU GPL allow commercial distribution?
