	... and the penalty? Answer: The profits made from the distribution in 
violation of the patent, trademark or copyright. The normal profits of 3rd 
partry repository maintainer for hosting any type of generally distributed 
quasi opensource package (usually $0, nada, gratto...) So in the case of 
damages=profits -- you can do the math.

	Of course all just assuming arguendo, because we know the archfr folks have 
the permissions they require :p
