When this comes up, may we use a word other than "copyrighted" to 
represent the program content of Hollywood? Most works are copyrighted, 
but a substantial portion (particularly in computing) are available 
under free licenses.

MythTV is copyrighted, but the GPL makes for a wonderful freedom to 
share it.

This reminds me of how the press perverted the word "hacker".
