Is it allowed to change license statement? [Was: Requesting sponsorship for Catalan Festival support]



Hi Sergio, debian-legal

Sergio, sorry to annoy you (one last time I hope) with this license.

I am surprised by the fact that you changed the text of the copyright
statement as found in festvox/upc_ca_ona_hts.scm. That clearly states:
"CARNEGIE MELLON UNIVERSITY AND THE CONTRIBUTORS TO THIS WORK", which
you changed to "THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND THE CONTRIBUTORS TO THIS
WORK". I understand your reasoning, but as I am unsure if this is
allowed, I ask debian-legal here for advise. Is such a change to the
license statement allowed (even for upstream)?

For reference, you can find the current debian/copyright and the source
with the header here:
