"Doubtful and misguided" - before making your clueless statements _read_ the 
FAQ: :


Is making and using multiple copies within one organization or company 
“distribution”? (#InternalDistribution)
No, in that case the organization is just making the copies for
itself.  As a consequence, a company or other organization can develop
a modified version and install that version through its own
facilities, without giving the staff permission to release that
modified version to outsiders.
However, when the organization transfers copies to other organizations
or individuals, that is distribution.  In particular, providing copies
to contractors for use off-site is distribution.

Everyone else, please disregard Jordi's misguided and f;at wrong statements.


The extent to which GPL proponents mind is clouded is simply astounding - in 
their propaganda zeal they fail to read and understand even their own camp ( 
www.gnu. org )issued documents.
