Hyman is not a party to the case, and "no infringement" anyhow would
mean that no identifiable parts of the registered version can be found
in the contested code.

Otherwise, any change of the code by the redistributor would make the
result a "noinfringement" since the result of the modification is no
longer identical with the registered version.

Of course, you already read that, and unless you are a complete moron,
also understood it.  But you need not be a moron to troll.
