Various lawyers have suggested that either you cannot do that (is US) or
that you should not do that. (You know the joke -- ask two lawyers and you
get three opinions -- but all depends on your country of residence.)
A license lets you say "I wrote this, you cannot claim that you did" and
"If you use this, you agree not to sue me". PD apparently allow both theft
and (legal) assault. Somewhere on the python site is a reference to the
'Academic License' which I believe says about this much (as does the Python
license) and which is compatible with possible donation to PSF.
