That would make no sense. My concern is this:
"This license grants all rights under the owner's copyrights
(as well as an implied patent license), ...."
that's one possible (and maybe even reasonable interpretation)
but "implied" is Not Good.
Well, patents aside for a moment, I personally find this whole
issue rather entertaining... if you grant "all rights" then why
not simply release it into the public domain?
