That last sentence can't possibly relate to the preceding one.
A copyright holder can give away its stuff to one group and sell it to
another. That's its perogative. So, giving away something can in no way

Please note that I think the TSG case is a load of bollocks. But the
abovementioned factoid is not evidence for one party or the other.
