I will take your word for it, but could you explain what this means?
"Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
collective works based on the Program."
...it is the intent to excercise the right to control collective works based
on the Program...
Some have recently said collective work does not equal collection, Mia stepped
in and seemed to say they were the same.
Perhaps what the problem comes down to is that things have been called
collective works in this discussion when they are not collective works?
Is a book with text and pictures a collective work?
I see how a distribution is a collective work. Ecen a CD with various songs on
it perhaps. But an illustrated book?
