Re: help with crafting proper license header for a dual-licensing project

I still cannot see why "proprietary" should mean "with secret source
code": its basic common meaning is "owned by a proprietor" and does
not refer to closeness or secrecy.

Your own words condemn you :-)

This is an accurate description of linux. Linux is "owned by a proprietor", namely whoever (singular or plural) happens to own the copyright(s).
