>Schlesinger and other commenters seem taken aback by the scope of the definition of "distributor," saying it would be ludicrous to hold Best Buy or other brick-and-mortar stores to the GPL if they sell boxed copies of free software
It seems rather that it would be ludicrous *not* to. Or are we saying that if you're a large corporation then copyright doesn't apply? If a shop started selling GPL software with additional restrictions imposed on the buyer, I would *absolutely* expect the copyright owner to take them to task on it.
