Hi again,

I think, like already suggested earlier, that a simple FAQ 
accompanying a license can solve those problems. The FAQ could largely 
consist of questions like "Can I do this or that with the software?". 
The answers could simply be yes or no. That way, our legal needs are 
satisfied, as well as our more common need: to know what we can and 
what we cannot do with a piece of software.
