I don't think any one of them is "correct", as even the standards
conflict on what should be done. But still, even an average one will
beat having none.

I think the advertising clause has been removed from all BSD software
some time ago. The copyright notice might be out of date.

I refuse to talk about SourceForge in polite company.
