The copyright statement, if clearly false, AFAICT means that the
license statement is null, leaving the recipient with no license at
A copyright statement is only effective if it's a statement by the
copyright holder. The best way to show that is to have the license
statement directly accompany a correct copyright statement in the
standard format, including "Copyright", years copyright began in that
work, and the correct name of the copyright holder.
