Does that still cost the defendent some money ?

Do you have an anti-SLAPP law yet in your country and/or state, and does 
it get applied ? (Where do you live ?)

Oh. I didn't know that you only meant the license.

But there are usually no copyright notices for typo correction. In that 
case, if there is a default implicit copyright, this sounds like it would 
have to do with the international treaty of 1978... is that right ?
