You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to
be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
The act of
running the Program is not restricted
Or here's another good one. Slash produces RDF's for distribution. That RDF can reasonably be considered software. So does the source code which produces that need to be available, if you modify it? Does the rest of the source code then need to be available, because of the RDF? As
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
making modifications to it.
And if that line of reasoning is correct, then what if Slash didn't have an RDF? Don't then all the webpages also count as a distribution? Putting up a website seems a lot like the public distribution of a program's output and interface, which I think is covered by the GPL.
