Re: Question on copyright

   Does this copyright on the examples cause any problems to GPL my source
   (i think not) and what notices are needed?

It doesn't mention that any notices are necessary; however you should
include this notice in the /usr/doc/<package>/copyright file.  It's
pretty scary that we're using code from the Evil Empire, but in
practical terms, it's irrelevant.

   The player with this part will become part of my debian package
