Standard contract law allows "implied" licences. E.g. if I offer you a cup
of tea (at home), you can safely assume that it is free, even if that is not
The existence of implied licences is a major reason to reject enforcement
schemes that currently are considered, e.g. by customs authorities. Customs
authorities need delailed knowledge about both the law (copyright
exceptions) and the fact (licence status). Actually, the are even unable to
be aware of *explicit* licences, because they are not registerd by
authorities (one real estate contracts are registered).
