Bug#649674: [copyright-format] Proofreading of the examples.

Package: debian-policy
Version: 3.9.2
Severity: normal
User: debian-policy@lists.debian.org
Usertags: informative issue

Dear all,

here is a proofreading of the examples in the latest draft [b4d036b].

I think that this is also a good opportunity to comment on the relevance of
these examples if need is, so I will wait a little before submitting a
conservative patch if nobody thinks the examples should be changed.  (In
particular, the discussion in #649530 highlights that some of the examples are
very artificial and turn quickly into cornercases in the real life, because the
GPL and the MPL feature edited notices where the name of softwares or their
holders are edited).

At mininimum, the correction for the following points are needed.

Example 1: missing opening bracket in the fourth paragraph.

Example 3: missing license short name for debian/* files.

Example 4: missing license short name for debian/* files.

Have a nice day,
