"All rights reserved" is the magic phrase that is necessary to get
copyright protection under the Pan-American copyright treaty.  (And
it's still relevant, because there are some countries which have
signed the Pan-American treaty, and not the Berne Convention.)  

Debian's policy is not to cut such hairs, any claimed copyright we
treat as if they claimed it properly.  

These files we cannot distribute at all (either as part of Debian or
in non-free).
