      Description

      All LICENSE files (including the rtf's in the windows bundles) contain the incorrect copyright date of 2003. *This does NOT affect JRE bundles! or /jre folders in JDK bundles!*

      Here is some evidence from the self extracting bundles :
      :"/net/lion/export/home/jdk/1.4.2_08/fcs/b03/binaries/binaries" 95 $ grep 2003 linux-i586/*
      linux-i586/LICENSE:information: Copyright 2003, Sun Microsystems, Inc. All rights

      The part of the LICENSE in question is the "SUPPLEMENTAL LICENSE TERMS" section "E".

      >===LICENSE===< (extract)
      The Media label shall include the following
      information: Copyright 2003, Sun Microsystems, Inc. All rights
      reserved. Use is subject to license terms. Sun, Sun
      Microsystems, the Sun logo, Solaris, Java, the Java Coffee Cup
      logo, J2SE , and all trademarks and logos based on Java are
      trademarks or registered trademarks of Sun Microsystems, Inc. in
      the U.S. and other countries.
      >/<

      Grep'ing for 2003 in all bundles reveals the same error. I have also checked a windows jdk exe, solaris jdk pkg, and linux jdk rpm to further confirm.
