Aloha Andreas,

I agree with you about the stupidity of the 10 line rule, and I begrudge every bit of attention I have to squander on US copyright law. However, if that law keeps like-minded individuals from working together on a free project that requires a corporate entity to complete long-term goals, then I think it will have achieved one of its core goals. I'd hate to see that happen.

All the best,

Hi Andreas,

Are you willing to sign those paper?

That would help, because the patch is more than 10 lines...

Hi Bastien,

please permit pointing at the silliness of such approaches, which state a creative work starts upward from 10 lines.

No single haiku will ever have a change to be protected by that famous US-copyright law.

I'm against spreading stupidity over the world and see with sorrow people abiding to it.

It's quite the opposite of freedoms GPL promises BTW.

Beside: Writing a programs name at the side of it's key will remain a trivial change even if this triviality is repeated.

So don't be afraid, if I refuse to sign which I think it's wrong from bottom up.
It remains a trivial change, sure.


Thanks for your help,
