Of course. The former is a verbatim copy of the source code, readily
reconstructed from its transmitted form. The other is not. In any case,
the only thing you have argued is that the former may not be a verbatim
copy either. It seems unlikely that such a view would prevail, however.

your arguments for you, because your arguments are invariably incorrect.
You need to state your arguments, and then we will point out to you how
they are wrong.
