I have to side with Cormac on this one. My concern would be that someone
is distributing openbios-ppc in custom hardware outside of QEMU/OpenBIOS
where things become murkier. At least here I can see the difference in
intent between declaring an incorrect copyright string and injecting a
dummy value in order to satisfy a particular client.
