Copyright law is bound to a work, while "Urheberrecht" (German term) is
bound to a person (ie, the author).

I won't write more because I don't know everything and don't like to
publish half-truths, maybe someone else may help.

You know, lawyer speak is difficult. I've thought about it, but
explicitly saying "Yes, I'm responsible and I didn't put in a
trojan horse by will" into the licence text at least has a
psychological effect.

Solange man keine schmutzigen Tricks macht, und ich meine *wirklich*
schmutzige Tricks, wie bei einer doppelt verketteten Liste beide
Pointer XORen und in nur einem Word speichern, funktioniert Boehm ganz
hervorragend.           -- Andreas Bogk über boehm-gc in d.a.s.r
