Application Packaging Developer's Guide

Writing a Copyright Message

You need to decide whether your package should display a copyright message while it is being installed. If so, create the copyright file.

Note –

You should include a copyright file to provide legal protection for your software application. It might be a good idea to check with the legal department of your company for the exact wording of the message.

To deliver a copyright message, you must create a file named copyright. During installation, the message is displayed exactly as it appears in the file (with no formatting). See copyright(4) for more information.

Note –

Be certain that your copyright file has an entry in the prototype file. Its file type should be i (for package information file).
