Statements _from_ Novell, Inc. / SUSE Linux AG alone obviously _cannot_
settle the question of permissions applicable to the diverse included
packages (e.g., inside Professional Edition), for the simple reason that
that firm doesn't own most of the software in question. Therefore, they
lack the legal title to say "Oh yeah, every package in this boxed set
may be redistributed within and without your organisation...."
Unless they bought out Real Networks, Inc., Opera Software ASA, Adobe
Systems, Inc., and Matrica GmbH, when I wasn't looking.
