       Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are

Linking == modification.

       These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
       identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the

Linking == deriviate work.

       Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate

Linking == depends on another work to function.

       works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not
       apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate

       Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
       your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
       exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or

Linking == the work is not written entierly by that person.

   Unfortunately, Alfred's enthusiasm for free software often gets the
   better of him and makes him claim theories that are not supported
   by even the FSF.  So when in doubt, rather consult the relevant
   FAQs, license texts and the responsible FSF personnel for getting
   the FSF's view.

Simply false.  The response I gave is what the FSF would tell you and
anyone else.  If you feel that it is wrong, please quote line and
verse since yet again you resort to personal attacks, lies and FUD.

But yes, consult the FSF people.
