(Let's recap Hyman's amusing nonsense from the other thread...)

Ladies and Gentlemen, not only (static) linking creates a MODIFIED work
(because linking "changes embedded values") but, gee, an EBCDIC copy of
some text is not a copy verbatim of the same text in ASCII and is also a
MODIFIED work according to Hyman!!!

Let's ignore the fact that WORK (expression) is clearly NOT modified so
there just can't be a MODIFIED work...

...and concentrate attention on the impact of Hyman's theory of MODIFIED
work on spreading GNU philosophy:

The thing is that

site yields Stallman's bullshit articles in ASCII compatible utf-8 which
is incompatible with EBCDIC.

Now, given that Stallman's article license

"Verbatim copying and distribution of this entire article is permitted
in any medium without royalty provided this notice is preserved"

clearly doesn't allow to MODIFY his work (only verbatim copying is
permitted) how does one spread the GNU philosophy in the world of
mainframes (EBCDIC world) without committing blatant copyright
infringement of Stallman's work under Hyman's moronic theory of MODIFIED



(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can 
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards 
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
