Except the first line, I am not sure if we want these claims in the
tree. First, a lot of files have been there before and so it should say
"Parts of this software" instead of "This software". 

Though "the Materials" are licensed GPL, the sentence "may not be
distributed, modified, or reproduced" sounds really scary to me.

I believe this means nothing bad here, but then what is it good for?
