Package: licensecheck
Version: 3.0.39-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

Running licensecheck on scikit-learn package:

$ licensecheck --copyright sklearn/manifold/
sklearn/manifold/ BSD (unspecified)
  [Copyright: 2014]

Even though this file is BDS-3-clause:

$ grep -C 3 BSD sklearn/manifold/
# Author: Alexander Fabisch  -- <>
# Author: Christopher Moody <>
# Author: Nick Travers <>
# License: BSD 3 clause (C) 2014

# This is the exact and Barnes-Hut t-SNE implementation. There are other
# modifications of the algorithm:

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

I expected licensecheck to detect a "BSD-3-clause" license instead of
BSD unspecified.

All the best
