As per below, we need to change www.sl.o to say (C) Software Freedom
Conservancy 2009, 2010 instead of (C) Sugar Labs 2009. Anywhere else
that (C) SL appears?

Please note that the address <conservancy at softwarefreedom.org> is
defunct.  The email found its way to me, but may not in the future.

It's certainly true that Sugar Labs is not a legal entity and cannot be
a copyright holder.  The copyright holder would therefore have to be the
individual generating the work, or the Conservancy.

Meanwhile, it's possible, if you like, for some of Sugar Labs work to be
assigned to Conservancy, and then can say "Copyright (C) Software
Freedom Conservancy".

We leave this decision wholly up to the projects, but everyone should be
using their own names in copyright assignments unless they've signed a
copyright assignment with the Conservancy (and I believe that no on in
Sugar Labs project has).
