This sounds completely unacceptable, if it means what it says.  It's also
probably invalid in the US.  Copyright assignments must be signed and on
paper; and OpenVision can't "retain" copyrights it never had in the first

Perhaps it simply means that they retain copyright in their portions, not
that they're stealing your derivative works.  That would require a
statement from the copyright holder before I'd belive it, though.

There are none so blind as those who will not see.
