But if you don't distribute the software, it's all theoretical. If I modify John Doe's module to use it to run my website, for example, and I never distribute the modified version, who cares if I posted the list of modifications and copyright notice in the source files (that only I ever see)? That's a formality that only becomes meaningful when you publish the modified version. Otherwise it's just paperwork for the sake of paperwork.
