Stop moving the goalposts Hyman. You've been talking about collective
works aka compilations. How come that now it's called "a unified
program"? Don't you know that such a term is not defined in the GPL
and/or copyright law?

The "unified program" is an extension of a GPL-covered work or a
larger program which has been formed by being combined with a GPL-
covered work, just as the GPL describes.

Separate permission is required from rights holders every time a
work is copied and distributed as part of a collective work, and
the rights holders may choose to distinguish what permissions they
grant based on the nature of the collective work, or in fact based
on anything at all.

The creators of the GPL choose to grant different permission based
upon whether a covered work is included as part of an aggregate on
a distribution medium, or whether it is integrated into a single

Your willful misinterpretation of the permissions granted by the
GPL serves your purposes as an anti-GPL crank, but fools no one.

As a delusional GPL advocate you choose to deliberately ignore the plain
consequences of U.S. Copyright law. The GPL is preempted by 17 USC sec.
301, it is unenforceable under contract law and is a misuse of
copyright. All this discussion of the legal consequences of the GPL is
delusional tilting at Windmills. Even a dysfunctional mind is a terrible
thing to waste.
