Legal departmen of IBM does his work. They try to
avoid any posible copyright issue after incorporating
commons-net into their product. 

(for example  If you were employed, then it would be
possible that your employer has  copyright on your
stuff in certain jurisdictions ) 

Insetad of JBoss inc they take copyright issues
seriosly ( you surely 
heard about JB copyright / licensing issues lately -
it could cost 
marketshare for them ) 

So IBM just tries to cover their and their customers
