For a long time, now, the copyright laws have been that anything created
is automatically copyrighted, no notice about it is required.  And, in
some places, that was always the case.  The notice just makes it easier
for someone to work out who owns what, and when it was created.  Knowing
that information does make it easy to ask for permission.

This is the opposite situation, though.  Wanting a notice about
copyright that *gives* permission from the owner.

To me, the obvious *simple* solution would be:  Can a smaller package
without the questionable parts be made?
