Read the GPL section 1. Read also creativecommons.org's share-alike
licenses. Finally, do me a favor and, in kinda "spirit" of the above 
mentioned section, please post the entire message of mine (including 
disclaimer) to the list. You can remove "[off-band]" prefix from the 
subject (given that you've already chosen to ignore it).

regards,
alexander.

If you truly believe that, you can make a lot of money publishing
books that contain reprints of stories and articles from magazines
without paying royalties to the authors of those stories and articles.
