I think the best legal notice would include the copyright by the author
or owner, followed by a permission to reproduce, redistribute, revise,
etc. The fewer conditions the better. One kind of condition that
some people have a lot of trouble with is one that requires that
all revisions are public domain... it could mean that if that code
is merged with other (proprietary) code, it all becomes public domain.
E.g. how would Lucid feel about using a yellow-pages editor if it meant
their compiler became public...
Where is the lawyer on this project, anyway?
