Reading is not hard at all. Misleading is obviously not difficult either. Its
in fact a lot easier to read the copyright for the distribution than it is to
read an individual copyright for one element of the distribution.
The copyright of Yast has always been that you cannot strip it and sell it.The
copyright for the entire distribution covers this yast re-distribution, and
you can do it provided you dont extract it from the OS. So too can you copy
the distribution even though it contains the full JBuilder 4 software, Start
Office...... The agreements have been cut, and any product that wont allow
distribution duplication is dropped. Plain and simple.
As explained you freedom to copy and distribute extends right up to the near 1
thousand euro enterprise server product.
