Well, but you wrote:

"I don't know why Nimmer thinks this is double-speak"

in regards to

"In a stunning example of double-speak, the Preamble to the GPL 
describes the reason for such provisions in the GPL in terms of 
protecting the licensee's rights:

                To protect your rights, ...

While proponents refer to such restrictions as creating “free” 
software, protecting rights, persons affected or potentially affected 
by the terms tend to refer to the risk of “viral” license terms that 
reach out to infect their own, separately developed software and of 
improper market leverage and misuse of copyright to control the works 
of other people."

Did you post your "I don't know why" objection to 

address@hidden 
(Raymond T. Nimmer
University of Houston - Law Center)

in addition to gnu.misc.discuss so that he knows about it?
