> Patches are typical derivative works themselves of the original work.

That's a very debatable point, though I doubt there is much point in
debating it here yet again.  My view is that a patch by itself makes
only fair use of the original, though it's true that a *patched work*
is a derivative work.  (That assumes the patch is substantial and not
de minimis, of course.)
