Hey dak, just to clarify: the point was not that the GPL is somehow a
unilateral contract (it's obviously a bilateral boiler plate contract
form, not unilateral) but rather that even gifts are contracts under the
German law. A totally gratuitous IP license IS ALSO A CONTRACT, silly
dak.

"Whether this [act] constitutes a gratuitous license, or one 
for a reasonable compensation, must, of course, depend upon 
the circumstances; but the relation between the parties 
thereafter in respect of any suit brought must be held to be 
contractual, and not an unlawful invasion of the rights of 
the owner."

Hth, silly.

regards,
alexander.
