    From section 2 (GPLv3, draft 2):

    This License acknowledges your rights of "fair use" or other
    equivalent, as provided by copyright law.

    By choosing 'acknowledges' as the verb, the licensee says explicitly
    that fair-use rights are already yours, not that they are being given
    to you.
