            how and  *** when ***

joke about "100 years delay" in fact is true ?  :-)
If this is true, then yes, this is big challenge personally for me.

Then I think all closed-source software can claim  that we all are GPL, and
ready to open our sources, e.g. 100-1000 years later.

I.e. Oracle and MS SQL can claim they are open source? :-)
Just 1000 years later ? Wait please ...

Is this right? 

But again. I think the only final word can give lawyer experts in this area.
