Have we ever seen this one before:

ASCIIMoviePlayerSample/qtplyr.c.htm

"In consideration of your agreement to abide by the following terms,

license,  under Apple's copyrights in this original Apple software (the

following text and disclaimers in all such  redistributions of the Apple

You can modify and redistribute it, but if you do remove all mention of  
"Apple"?

The change history is also good for a laugh.
