I believe that I quoted the _license_ part of a CMap source header, deliberately leaving out the _copyright_ and _disclaimer_ parts, ad I considered those irrelevant for the question at hand.

Please do educate me if that was a) incorrectly separated,

I would say you left out the third clause, which is the difference between the 3-clause BSD license and the 2-clause BSD license...

Ah, ok.

b) bad style
to leave out those other parts for questions like this

I personally think that the copyright notice is important to quote too,
as we are talking about a specific work, rather than about a license in
a vacuum.

Moreover, the disclaimer is typically "attached" to the license, and is
part of the legal text that grants the permissions we need.
In some licenses, it is even more entwined with the rest of the legal
I think the disclaimer should be fully quoted too.

Thanks for educating me! :-)
