Isn't a distributor also usually an end user? Shouldn't the rights granted to a distributor also be granted to an end user?
For example, many GPL:ed pieces of software are licendes under GPL2 or later. So the end user may choose if he accepts the license terms of GPL2, GPL3 or GPL4. But does that mean that any user may download the source of a package, accept the license terms of GPL2, modify the package and then release the resulting derivative work under GPL2 only?
