Bug#503685: debian-policy: Error in command example of debian policy manual on how to show copyright file

Package: debian-policy
Severity: minor

In ap-pkg-binarypkg.html, section B1, the example is:
To view the copyright file for a package you could use this command:

       dpkg --fsys-tarfile filename.deb | tar xOf - \*/copyright | pager

I've tried this command with tar version 1.20 and I need this command, with the --wildcards option
       dpkg --fsys-tarfile filename.deb | tar xOf - --wildcards \*/copyright | pager
