For what I wanted the current position is fine, I think that was the
first place I looked for it originally.  I'd expect it to be in a HOWTO
type document, I'm not sure that it actually belongs in the licence
itself (no other licence I've seen has that sort of thing in it).

(The company for which I wanted it has confirmed that they have no
interest in claiming IP for any software which isn't directly written
for them, which is good to hear.  Especially since the last one tried
to claim everything for up to half a year after we left...)
