Published material: The definition of published is the distribution of a work to the public
i. “of a work” = copies or phonorecords
ii. "to the public" = as distribution to persons under no explicit or implicit restrictions with respect to disclosure of the contents.

1. by sale or other transfer of ownership, or by rent, lease, or lending; or

2. if there has been an offering to distribute to a group of persons for purposes of further distribution, public performance, or public display.

This definition means that a license agreement is not publishing per se, because "to the public" is "the general public." Is this a good legal interpretation?
