Redistributing Apple’s Sample Code

Andy Lee:

Isn’t that a tautology? If I share the file without modification, then the licensing terms are already in the file. If I remove the licensing terms from the file, then it’s no longer “without modification”, and I am then free to share the file sans licensing terms. That’s what I would naively think. Does the law include a rule of some kind to avoid this circularity?
