(This is regular posting.)

Q: What the fuck ... !?

A: The context is property. Intangible intellectual property (rights
   granted under IP license). Property in short.

Q: What price restrictions?

A: Property price restrictions.

Q: What 'price'? Define 'price'.

A: Cost to obtain EXISTING property on buyer's side. Price is fixed 
   at zero in the case of property locked in the GPL pool (e.g. Guh-
   NÜ-slash-Linux, the GPL part of it).

Q: A GPL coder is not compensated?

A: That plus administration overhead, etc. Cost required to create 
   NEW property (GPL derivative works, additions to GPL collective 
   works) on seller's side. The GPL fixes the price below cost. 
   Wallace is claiming antitrust injury from predatory pricing 
   (pricing below cost) and says that the whole scheme is in 
   violation of Sherman Act 1.
