So you are saying the MODULE-IDENTITY should include the following
copyright statement:

    "Copyright (C) The Internet Society (2003). This version of
     this MIB module is part of RFC xxxx; see the RFC itself for
     full legal notices."

But Mike's point was that the IEEE 802.1 is not assigning copyright
to anyone else, so "Copyright (C) The Internet Society (2003)." is
misleading.

Would it not be more correct to say:

    "Copyright (C) The Institute of Electrical and Electronics
     Engineers, Inc. (2003). This version of this MIB module is
     part of RFC xxxx; see the RFC itself for full legal notices."

or just:

    "This version of this MIB module is part of RFC xxxx;
     see the RFC itself for full legal notices."

Since Scott has been diving into this topic so much
in his work for IPR WG, I decided to ask him.
Here is his answer.

Thanks,

I think you are right (use the same text)

Scott, if we republish an IEEE MIB module as an Informational
RFC, would the text in the MIB-MODULE itself also need
to be changed from what we normally put there?

I would think we can use same standard text, since
it points back to the RFC, which explains the copyright
in more detail.

Thanks,
Bert
