No, the licence belongs to Digital which was bought by Compaq, which in
turn was bought by HP. Our contact at HP knows about it, but needs to
take time to dig in the paperwork. So, it is not so much that we don't
know to whom the licence belongs, but that the paper containing the
licence is lost in a huge pill of old papers or something such, and it
takes some time to search for it.
