"In fact, the GPL itself rejects any automatic aggregation of software
copyrights under the GPL simply because one program licensed under the

a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other
work under the scope of this License." Plaintiff's mischaracterization
of the GPL in his Response has no bearing on the resolution of the

In Constitutional Law, statutes that contain ambiguous language are void
for vagueness. The language of such laws is considered so obscure and
uncertain that a reasonable person cannot determine from a reading what
the law purports to command or prohibit. This statutory ambiguity
deprives a person of the notice requirement of Due Process of Law, and,
therefore, renders the statute unconstitutional.  "
