Bug#737395: not possible to fix this

Salvo Tomaselli-3
After some investigation, it seems that it is not possible to fix this
in a proper way.

The only solution I see is to do something illegal and just re-assign
the copyright, in hope that no original author will ever do anything
about that.

But the original authors all seem to be impossible to contact.
