Ah, here it is.  It's the EFF (!) making the argument, in this case
with respect to the transmission of music over a P2P network, but I
don't see how it wouldn't apply equally to transmission of Wikipedia
over the web.


It kind of makes you rethink everything you always thought about
copyright law as it applies to the Internet.  For instance, the GFDL
apparently (I did a quick search) doesn't even mention public
performance or public display.  Oops?
