Hi Frank,

I think you've lost me here. Since Oracle does not exclusively own
the copyright for individual content, surely it cannot relicense it
unilaterally? Especially it cannot remove copyright statements like
as per ยง4 c?

Disclaimer: I have a stake in this, being one of the people listed
on the page above ...
