Bug#1282: minicom copyright

Package: minicom
Version: ???

I have a copy of minicom in /usr/bin and the copyright notice.  I think I
installed it and then removed it but some stuff got left behind?

Anyway the real problem could be the minicom copyright, which starts:
  [Maintainer's note: I could not find any copyright or distribution rights
   information anywhere in the source code to Minicom 1.6.  With that in mind,
   I would imagine that Minicom is freeware (whatever that means) but please
   give any credit for this fine program to the author.  If you would like
   specific licensing information you can contact the author at one of the
   addresses below.]

This worries me.  Do we even have permission to copy the program or provide
to others?
