The FSF says:

| You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or
| your school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program,
| if necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:
| Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
|  `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James
| Hacker.
| signature of Ty Coon, 1 April 1989
| Ty Coon, President of Vice
