Because LyX is under the same License as KDE - straight GPL. I don't
believe the quoted information from the webpage has any legal standing.
If it does, then it should be in /usr/doc/lyx/copyright, and all
/usr/doc/lyx/copyright is is a reference to the GPL. The reason I quoted
it, is I'm not sure what legal standing it has and it might be relevant.
