        You previously claimed:
                I do read law-school law-books for "fun"

What I suggest is that you read, seriously, what they say
about "copyright" versus "license", and try to understand
the difference between those two different things (Also,
try to figure out "What is the sound of one hand clapping?"
and make it while you're seriously reading and thinking. 8-).

        Two academic organizations, plus all who ever contributed
to Lynx, hold copyrights on one or another part or aspect of the
code and documention.  And it's all licensed without license fees.
That's the best guarantee for the Lynx User Community that Lynx
is, and will remain, freeware.
