Sorry, they published that "clarification" after I raised the issue, and
their "clarification" is bullshit.

Guess what: The FSF doesn't make the law.

Quick rundown:

Section 4 of the GPLv2 states "parties who have received..."

The "you" here is the licensee, it is not the grantor (See Section 0 of
the GPLv2 "Each licensee is addressed as "you". "). It is not applicable
against the grantor of the license: it is a rule the licensee has to
abide by, set by the grantor, in-order to have permission to modify or
create derivative works at all.

About the printer driver case: The contract in that case is the
preliminary writing, the offer to do business ("pay us, or alternatively
follow the GPL"). The acceptance of that contract by following the terms
of that preliminary writing (choosing the GPL instead of paying). That
is why both contract and damages under copyright are available. Damages
for the contract portion ("pay us"), or damages for violating the GPL
license.

The parties later settled out of court. The key is that the businesses
offer created two alternative means of acceptance of it's offer to do
business: pay for the commercial license, or follow the GPL. So the
court allowed the biz to recover the lost profit.

Sorry, read a book *, not a publication by interested parties that was
debunked 5 hours after it was published.

Cites idiot self-sure* paralegal woman who doesn't know her ass from her
elbow, and who went silent after she was outed, plus a publication from
an interested party that was immediately debunked.

(*is there any other type?)

Vs: Cites published lawyers well versed in their field.

Explains why interested party's publication is bullshit immediately once
aware of the fraudulent advice.
