Of course, now you're going to argue that there's no such thing as an

words that were made up for the GPL, so they can be ignored.. another
pointless semantic argument because it doesn't change the very simple
fact that you don't have any rights to copy the work unless you have a
license and you don't have a license if you fail to abide the
conditions of the license.

I don't have to argue these points, because they're obvious to anyone
who cares to do their own homework. Appellate court decisions _are_
the law, my friend; read 'em and weep.
