Sam, You missed the point. 

Here's what I wrote:

I cited this as an example where we would want a NOTICE. Whether Sebb is right or wrong in
his infringement analysis is not relevant to this broader point. I was commenting on Roy's
statement of the policy when I wrote this:

> I'll suggest once again that it would also be helpful to our

That is what this thread was/is about. This policy statement ought to be discussed.
