yeah, actually Jan, you're right. i dont see the need for such a clause
either, because the law will cover you regardless of whether you use the
GPL or a regular copyright. the GPL was very cleverly built on top of
copyright law and is legally binding - i believe the MySQL case tested
it in court too.
patents are a different matter, i'm not sure we can preclude the
possibility that people might patent something, except that you'd have
to be on the lookout for a member with $25000 to spare. i believe thats
what it costs to register a patent?....
