My understanding is that when one uses/redistributes/whatever JtR, their local copyright law applies - and a large percentage of JtR users are in the US (more than e.g. in Russia, I guess). Also, due to international treaties, copyright laws of many countries are quite similar now. That said, as I wrote "things may vary by jurisdiction." > Is it due to where GPL is licensed?
