...which is why you get GPLv3 softwares with every section 7 term you can 
imagine. Authors who get no quick answer just make up answers instead of 
chasing the answers. The mentality is "they won't explain it? Fine, I'll 
just use what I want as section 7 terms." That shouldn't be like that but 
that's reality (especially since free software tend to come from private 
people and not from corporations with an army of lawyers).
