Excellent. So I can distribute that bzImage without heed to the
provisions of copyright law? I don't need permission from the people who

The Windows kernel image is also just a mechanical production from the
Windows source code. Does that not have a copyright either? Does that
mean I can distribute Windows without heed to the provisions of
copyright law too? As long as it's only the binaries, not the source?
