Well, the problem with that phrasing is that most people would wrongly
assume 'donating a copyright' means 'donating the copyright ownership'
- it's way too subtle.  We all know that they are *not* transferring
the copyright ownership - they are simply sharing it with us under a
license.  (This is the true Jeffersonian ideal.)  Hence, find another
word for 'copyright' (they are also granting patent rights too) to
remove the ambiguity.  -- justin
