Glad to see the discussion about the treatment of moral rights. I do want
to clarify one point from Rob's email. Version 4.0 does have language
designed to address fair dealing and other limitations and exceptions to
copyright. It is in Section 2(a)(i): "You can make any and all uses of the
Licensed Work for which permission is not required under Applicable
Copyright and Neighboring Rights without regard to this Public License."
Of course, if people think this language is not clear or could be made more
prominent, we would definitely like to know. This is an incredibly
important component of the licenses.
