You don't understand, Hyman.
The idea is that by doing a few modifying and copyrightable changes into
a "single program" in response to the GPL offer one becomes a joint
copyright owner of the entire work "as a whole" and can rightfully
license that entire work (with 'as a whole' as 'defined' and intended by
the GPL) in disrespect of the GPL. It's jujitsu against jujitsu, if you
like. Copyleft against copyright? The copyright can fire back in jujitsu
mode much better!
Got it now, Hyman?
regards,
alexander.
P.S. "It is just like a suit to enforce a copyright license, which
arises under state law rather than under the Copyright Act. "
Hyman's lovin' http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Gaiman_v._McFarlane
P.P.S. "the registered work is a compilation"

(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
