Not all of it is,

misc/translator/po/default_intranet_zh_TW.po:# Copyright 2004-2005 Ambrose Li
misc/translator/po/default_opac_pl_PL.po:# Copyright 2004 Benedykt P. Barszcz
C4/Amazon.pm:# Copyright 2004-2005 Joshua Ferraro (jmf at kados dot org)
misc/overduenotices.pl:# Copyright 2003 Skemotah Solutions
misc/Install.pm:# Contains parts Copyright 2003-4 MJ Ray

Etc, but yes the majority is. You are right, we could assign copyright to
the FSF .. I dont think anyone is proposing to do that though are they?
