It is still a copyright, that the court has invalidated. Are you really
saying that I can go down to the library and photocopy a whole book on the
basis of this court judgement?
Yes the project is changing its license, with the next release of software,
but I wonder where the decision leaves a lot of people, from the music and
video industry, down to painters, photographers, and goodness knows who
else, that claim copyright to works.
