All that gets changed after assignment to the FSF is the copyright
statement. No "erasing" that I'm aware of.
[E.g., if you look at many lisp files in the GNU Emacs distribution,
they contain an "Author: ..." line that is the original author(s).]
p.s. I think the FSF in general plays it quite fair; I'd treat a
for-profit company with a lot more skepticism.
