Re: GPL and other licences

   I meant to write exactly what I did.  Somebody who admits to being
   incapable of grasping the concept of "internal use" should not go
   reinterpreting the words of someone else.

Can you please stop your condesending tone?  It will make for a more
pleasent discussion.

   Wrong.  The whole point of "internal use" is that the license is
   not relevant to a company employee.

I cannot take a non-free program (legally), install it on all internal
machines, and then pretend that I do not have to abide by the license.
I am still bound by copyright law.  It doesn't matter if it is
internal use or not.

   Oh sure.  Like you can just take a car and drive it away when its
   purchase contract does not apply to you.

Why are you comming up with such silly examples? A car is not
software, copyright laws do not apply to property.  Please, stop it
David, you are far to intelligent to troll like Alexander.

   > Since I legally aquired the content,

   Look up "acquire" in a dictionary of law.  You did no such thing if
   the software is work material of your company.  You don't acquire a
   company car, and you don't acquire company software.

Stop confusing physical objects with non-physical objects.  You gave
me as an employee of your company a CD, legally, to me, I can take the
content of the CD and redistribute it _IF_ the license of the software
allows me to.

   As long as you are not living in a communistic state, company and
   worker property remain separate.  Even if you are living in a
   communistic state, the unity is merely theoretical.

What next? Godwin's law?  Are you really this silly that you cannot
keep a level headed discussion without resorting to Alexanders methods
of sillyness?

Please, David, I'm all for discussing things, but you are going down
the spiral of Alexander with your totally irrelevant comments,
comparisons that have nothing to do with the disucssion at hand, and
these silly accusations.
