Here's your prior message:
:: An open source license also licenses the use of intellectual property -
:: not only the copyright of the source. Copyright pertains only to the
:: substantive document it is applied to - not the intellectaul property
:: within. Or am I mistaken ?
Your choice of language suggests that (1) you are overcomplicating
the issue with concepts that have no legal meaning or (2) you don't
understand the law and are making stuff up or (3) you understand it
perfectly but communicate it poorly.
JB's assessment is accurate in pointing to a problem on your part,
be it point 1, 2, or 3 above.
Put simply, you're question cannot be answered because it cannot be parsed.
Whether it is a typo or a bad choice of verbage or that you don't understand
the concepts is impossible to know. But the short of it is your question,
as it stands, doesn't make sense.
Getting indignant towards the people who donate their time for free here,
insisting that you know what you are talking about while demanding someone
answer your question will only guarantee that your question remain unanswered.
I suggest you try a fresh start, reword your question, and perhaps
someone can answer it for you.
