I took it from the ODF Toolkit, which presumably came from POI.  I
would have never thought to check that their LICENSE file had crud in
it.  Odd.  Maybe a remnant from previous practice at Apache?

I'd recommend replacing with an authentic clean copy of the license
from some authoritative source, rather then trying to guess what parts
are wrong.
