Do we have some better authority on this than Wikipedia? In my 
understanding (in a dim memory, now long-time inactive lawyer), dual 
character of copyright under the copyright law in the continental law 
tradition could mean, that waiver of copyright is partially invalid (in 
the part concerned with personal rights of owner), but perfectly valid 
in the right to exploit economical character of the work, which is all 
what matters here anyway. I would really like to see some opinion of the 
real European IP law on the matter. Does anybody have URL?

But if we find we have left our bones to bleach in these desert
sands for nothing, beware the fury of the legions...
