    MANIFEST: Clarify.
    Ingo Schwarze rightly points out that there are multiple domains of
    licensure (trademark, patent, etc.) and that GNU GPLv3 explicitly
    involves patent law whereas many FLOSS licenses do not.  There is also
    the matter of public domain materials not having (or requiring, at least
    in common law jurisdictions) a "license", albeit copyright law remains
    material to them.
