I believe that the copyright statement is not a part of the
license. The copyright statement is merely informational text, in
countries that are Berne convention signatories, is it not? I have been
under the impression that the license is the stuff following the
copyright statement which outlines your rights and restrictions _in_
_addition_ to standard copyright.
Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.
