Truce != Non-Aggression Pact

There's been a great deal of discussion today about some sort of "compromise" between several content-industry trade groups and technology industries (see Copyfight summary)

I've been busy, so haven't time to write at length. But I can't resist one remark:

This isn't a truce. It's a non-aggression pact.

Like the one between Germany and the Soviet Union (I'm going to pay for that analogy!)
