Abstract
Bell inequalities are usually derived by assuming locality and realism, and therefore violations of the BellCHSH inequality are usually taken to imply violations of either locality or realism, or both. But, after reviewing an oversight by Bell, in the Corollary below we derive the BellCHSH inequality by assuming only that Bob can measure along vectors b and b' simultaneously while Alice measures along either a or a', and likewise Alice can measure along vectors a and a' simultaneously while Bob measures along either b or b', without assuming locality. The violations of the BellCHSH inequality therefore only mean impossibility of measuring along b and b' (or along a and a') simultaneously.
