I'm trying to wrap up Hoard (it's a week late, and I'm getting twitchy); one of the things people have asked for is that I clean up the "Stakeholder License" into something at least a little formalised. So I've tried to do that, and I'm now looking for obvious flaws...
The following text is released into the public domain; no copyright is claimed for this license.
1. Definitions: A “stakeholder” is any person that has purchased a copy of the product which incorporates this license, or who has received a copy of such product from the author.

-Content which is duplicated from the original work must be clearly indicated as such.
-Where such content is used, copyright of that portion of the content must be noted as being retained by the author, and as being used under the terms of this license.

5. Reformation: If any portion of this License is found to be unenforceable, that portion shall be reformed only to the extent necessary to make it enforceable.
Now, I appreciate that the vast majority of folks here aren't lawyers, but it there anything that strikes you as plainly and obviously wrong or clumsy in there?
