    I explained something poorly:

    > received, but he's been completely coy in the details.

    The point I wanted to make is that a few people have said that lawyers
    say that kernel modules are derivative, but I only remember Alan saying
    that he had actually spoken with the lawyers. Therefore I infer that
    this somewhat widely held opinion originates from him. My point was to
    those people who have been taking him at his word, and was to point out
    that there are more reliable and transparent sources. Don't take his
    word on it. Take the words of real experts in the law, because instead
    of a mere four word conclusion, they explain everything.
