What does "disclaiming a copyright mean"?

Dear debian-legal subscribers,

As I am not a native speaker, I face difficulty of understanding the
following sentence:

" Burkhard Morgenstern hereby disclaims all copyright interest in 
    DIALIGN, written by Burkhard Morgenstern and Said Abdeddaim. "

It is from the licence of the dialign program, which you can read here:


Does in mean that B. Morgenstern abandons his rights to S. Abdeddaim ?

Thank you a lot for your help,
