David, thank you for the comments, but a repeated them in your
statements are that the license is what the provider "told" me. Now
are we talking about verbal, voiced agreements? I thought the presence
of the headers and the license.txt together constitute the license,
and they are what the author of the software uses to "tell" me what
conditions he gives me the software in.

I can think of elucidating on the book example you gave me, but I
truly beleive that A Good Analogy is like A Tall Color.
