This is also in the APSL and IBM licenses. What was considered non-free
were the ones that required you to send them email on _every_ modification,
that was judged to be too great a hardship and this was the compromise.

Also in the Mozilla public license.

Also in just about every license ever written anywhere. QPL, MPL, NPL, IBM,
Regarding the "monitor the web site" thing, I can't think of another good
way for them to notify you if there's a claim, unless they demand you name
and address. The IBM and APSL licenses also address claims, although they
don't seem to provide any good way of communicating information about claims.
