   Gui-engine is a program to demonstrate copyrights
   GUI copyright 2006, Jacob
   Engine copyright 2005, Joseph

   and whatever other flowery prose that might come to mind :-)

I think it is better to explicitly note that the program is free
software or some such in an interactive blurb like that.  This is what
GDB does (which is a good example):
