licensecheck -r --copyright . on openpyxl finds these:

If opened in 'less' these files do contain the text "Copyright 2007 Apple Inc., all rights reserved.", marked as 'etext'.

However, if opened in LibreOffice, no _obvious_ command displays this text. File > Properties instead displays creation and modification dates/authors that match the openpyxl upstream commit dates/authors (2012-4), which suggests that these are *not* straightforward copies of Apple-owned example files.

Their actual contents are mostly formatting, i.e. they look like something created specifically to be a test case for reading formatting, or possibly a documentation example for formatting but the above makes that less likely, not something copied from real-world use.

Given this, why is that copyright notice there, and what does it imply that we should do? (E.g. does Apple Numbers automatically copy Apple-owned items (e.g. fonts) into files it creates? If so, is there a way to remove these items to get a Free file?)
