This is different from the requirement of some licenses that a notice
be displayed on the console, or in a dialog box, when the program is

Thank you for the replies.

Actually, I was concerned about *any* notice on binary distros. Even the requirement to put a copyright notice in a directory somewhere can be hard to sell.
