Yeah, that looks like "isn't a copyright holder" to me too.  You'll see
similar things on a ton of my free software.  I'm listed as the author,
but the copyright holder is The Board of Trustees of the Leland Stanford
Junior University because I wrote the software as part of my job and
therefore it counts as work for hire.
