Subject: [COX patch 0/2] Deep review of 'COX' disclaimers
Date: Thu, 06 Jun 2019 11:53:26 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20190606095326.496591298@linutronix.de> (raw)

The 'COX' disclaimers are named after the assumed inventor (Alan Cox). They
contain the following pattern:

    Neither $PERSON nor $CORP admit liability nor provide warranty for any
    of this software. This material is provided as is and at no charge.

$PERSON and $CORP are placeholders for individuals and corporations which
vary with the various source files. But other than the names the wording is
identical throughout all.

The individuals have a copyright notice in the affected files. The email
address belongs to the associated corporates.

Interesting question what to do with those.

Thanks,

	tglx
