As has been mentioned elsewhere in this thread, Corel is *NOT* attempting
to retain title to GPLed software.  The exact text is:

All right, title and interest in the Software Programs, including source code,
documentation, appearance, structure and organization, are held by Corel
Corporation, Corel Corporation Limited, and others and are protected by
copyright and other laws.               ^^^^^^^^^^
