I'm of two minds on this issue. On the one hand, I object to the idea of 
your taking over copyright duties because I fear that you don't know 
what a huge task you're taking on and that you'll eventually quit the 
project altogether. :) But if you really think you want to do this, I 
don't object.

Yes, please don't. It makes us look bad. I think I'm on record as having 
that position and being of the opinion that the whole premise behind the 
copyright page, as it stands now, is horrible. I'm unaware of any time 
that any letter writing campaign to release content has succeeded.

And the little "locked" links on the website should definitely go away. 
They're incredibly confusing to users and misrepresent the actual state 
of affairs.
