Are those works available to the general public to copy and do all other
acts reserved to the copyright holders like in the case of the GPL
licensed works? Show me a single RIAA copyright case "against those
people" where RIAA attached a copyright license (with whatever terms) to
the complaint. You are either very confused or dishonest, Hyman.

be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards 
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
