The standard contract does not seem to contain a provision for this. But they could have negociated a special deal, of course.

"Tae help the folk in medical school, word is passed around
A body nae mair than ten days auld will bring in fourteen pound.
It's a terrible thing, but truth tae say ---in this age o' greed
A man's worth little when he's alive, but plenty when he's deid."

"An' it's doon the close an' up the stair
A but-an'-ben wi' Burke and Hare
Burke's the butcher, Hare's the thief
And Deeb is the man that buys the beef."

And?

Then you have a "new program" but still broke copyright laws...
These were the copyright laws that I was quoting. The company I worked for wrote an accounting package that ran citys and counties across the nation. It normally sold for $50,000.00 so they were very much aware of all the copyright laws.
Like I said in the previous post if anything has changed then point me to the legal area where it is quoted.

Check the GNU GPL agreement. When a piece of code is distributed under that license, all the terms of the license apply. Even if more restrictive than copyright laws.
No set percentage of changes under 100% will make a work exempt from copyright infringement. There are guidelines, but in the end it's up to the judges.

The GPLv2 is no more restrictive than copyright. It is only a license to use copyrighted material, not an EULA. I think this is true of GPLv3 as well.
