The GPL is a copyright license, granting additional rights

Are those additional rights that the GPL grants "In Personam"
(contract rights) or "In Rem" (property rights)? I thought Article
I, Section 8, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution gave
Congress the power to grant new copyrights.

What use would a right be if you could not use it as leverage?  You
can't do that if you have nothing to offer.


How is your assertion relevant to my question?

Sincerely, RJack :)
