I guess I'm still missing where the copyright statement came from.  What
you have in debian/copyright is:

| This module is Copyright (C) 2005 by Adam Kennedy
| Email: <cpan@ali.as>
| All rights reserved Without Prejudice.
| This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
| it under the terms of either:

|        Foundation; either version 1, or (at your option) any later version, or
|     b) the "Artistic License" which comes with Perl.

The module has a COPYRIGHT section in its documentation, though, which

|     Copyright 2005 Adam Kennedy. All rights reserved.
|     This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it
|     under the same terms as Perl itself.

What you're saying is the same thing that he's saying, but it's not a copy
of his copyright statement (and in particular I don't understand the
"Without Prejudice" bit).

I would move his e-mail address up to the same line where you list the
upstream maintainer and then replace all of the bit quoted above with the
bit I quoted from the COPYRIGHT section of the module.  (You can omit the
bit referring people to the LICENSE file in the package, since you're
instead referring them to /usr/share/common-licenses, correctly.)

Everything else looks good to me.
