Is that what happens?
You and I can contrive use cases. Real people dont rip political speeches.
Even that is potential copyright infringement

There is a line somewhere between open, and abuse, and unless this

I say we enforce GPL to the limit, and make them go else where.  We dont
need them in our list of credits.
