Hi Shadi,

maybe I can help out with point #2 - this is for 2 reasons - firstly 
because the hyperlink provides the full text for the copyright policy 
and secondly because in Shawn's work she says about that sentence - that 
the wording doesn't seem / can't be right. In reality anyone can quote 
text as long as it is referenced - this text says that the text can be 
included in a derived work as though it is the work of the derivee; I 
agree with Shawn 'this can't be right'.

and for my 2 pennth - shall we discuss #1 at the meeting - Shadi, I know 
you aren't there today so could you be a little more specific as to what 
you would like to see so I can accurately represent this in the call?



PS I check my email at 08:00 and 17:00 GMT. If you require a faster response please include the word 'fast' in the subject line.
