comment Dictionary representation of an object
@overexchange So you simply want to know why function objects have additional properties that weren't explicitly declared by your code?

comment Dictionary representation of an object
Just to be clear, I'm sure you do have a perfectly valid answerable question, but from reading your post, I'm not 100% sure what that question is right now. I could post an answer with information that will probably be helpful to you, but I'm not sure if would answer your exact question, because I don't fully understand it.

comment Dictionary representation of an object
I didn't downvote, but I am having trouble understanding exactly what you're asking. First, I am having trouble parsing your question, "Can you write the dictionary form {} of foo for the above representation...?" Do you want to see an object literal that produces the same console output? Or are you asking if it is possible (vs. not possible) to do that at all? Second, I don't understand how your section "Infact, I observed that, anything is stored as dictionary element..." relates to the rest of your question. It seems like a totally separate observation.

comment At what point do you drop attribution to original work?
"At what point do you drop attribution to original work?" reduces to the problem "At what level of change does a derived work stop being a derived work?" I suspect the answer to this question is either "Never," or "It is impossible to tell without a court ruling."

@amon Another very relevant GPL FAQ item (good as a follow-up after reading Robert's link) is this one, particularly the last three paragraphs: gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#MereAggregation

comment Do legal names matter with source code licensing in the USA?
Does your question assume that the contributor psedononymously submitted a CLA, or that a pseudonymous contributor does not submit a CLA? Are you asking what happens if a contributor does not submit a CLA (and that contributor happens to be pseudonymous), or whether pseudonymously-signed CLAs are legally binding?

comment MIT vs. BSD vs. Dual License
Point #2 (BSD code cannot be included in MIT code) runs contrary to every piece of information I've ever read about 3-clause and 2-clause BSD. Point #2 would be true about the (now-ancient and forgotten) 4-clause BSD, but the OP has made it clear this question is not about the 4-clause BSD. It seems quite harmful to have such a hugely misleading piece of information in an otherwise very good and credible answer.

comment License terms when porting free software to another language
@FrankHileman Copyright certainly applies to creative notional content as well; cf. (to pick one example) Anderson v. Stallone in which the defendant wrote a Rocky sequel and was found guilty of infringement, even though he used nothing verbatim from the text of any other Rocky script or recording. Surely the "how similar are the works?" test as part of determining infringement does not merely include verbatim text comparisons.
