A possibly naive question: The text you submitted is a _broad_ definition
that is in common use. Is there a similar _narrow_ definition as well?

I don't see that this text would be the right way for a quid-pro-quo
license to define the legal entity in which distribution doesn't happen,
because that entity would include beta-testers under contract, would it
not? Maybe even _users_ under contract or NDA?

On the other hand, there are applications in a quid-pro-quo license
_would_ use this definition, "Your Licensed Patents" comes to mind.
