Module::CPANTS::Analyse copyright and license



Hi,

Thanks for writing and maintaining the Module::CPANTS::Analyse module!

I'm in the process of creating a Debian Linux package for it, and
it is almost ready.  However, I've hit a little snag: from a pedantic
legal point of view, the text that is present in the various files
of the Module-CPANTS-Analyse-0.82 distribution is not quite clear on
who owns the copyright for what files.

Of course, there is the statement in the Module::CPANTS::Analyse
module itself, which says:
This code is Copyright (c) 2003-2006 Thomas Klausner.
All rights reserved.

...but it's not clear if this statement applies to all the other
files in the distribution :)  Moreover, there are lots of files
which have a "COPYRIGHT" POD section, but it contains only a *license*
statement and nothing about the copyright :)

Would it be possible for you to either add an explicit copyright
statement to all the files, or simply copy the copyright statement
from Module::CPANTS::Analyse to the distribution's README file?
(and update the copyright years, of course :) ..and possibly add
a copyright statement for Gabor Szabo?)
Just adding the text to the distribution's README file ought to be
enough to make it cover the whole distribution, and remove the final
minor obstacle for others to use, embed, or just distribute your
excellent module! :)

Thanks in advance for your time, and keep up the good work!

G'luck,
Peter

This sentence claims to be an Epimenides paradox, but it is lying.
