I'm not sure if they actually want you to print the notice on the
cartridge. But the license doesn't permit non-developers (mirror
admins, for example) to distribute the code.
Has anybody asked Sun for a clarification of the license, or tried to
obtain the code under a different license? Or maybe the FSF has
obtained a suitable license and just forgot to update the copyright
