I think "all rights reserved" is one of those outdated special terms
(like writing copyright, the C in circle, and all the other stuff that
had some meaning many decades ago) people use like magic stickers out
of fear they might be needed somewhere. As it looks like a contradiction
it is note nice and better be removed. But I'd guess that this part
is no real problem.
