Subject: Re: Copyright language for schemas?

Thanks for raising this - I need to review my practice with Jamie. Having said that -> 

Section 14.2 of the IPR policy lays out the alternate, minimal notice that can be included in machine readable files like schemas - https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/ipr#notices

It reads: 

14.2 Alternative Notice

Other OASIS Deliverables that are primarily intended for machine rather than human consumption and whose format requires terse _expression_ may, as an alternative to Section 14.1, include just the short-form notice as follows replacing [copyright year] with the year or year range of publication:

Copyright © OASIS Open [copyright year]. All Rights Reserved.
Distributed under the terms of the OASIS IPR Policy, [http://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/ipr], AS-IS, WITHOUT ANY IMPLIED OR EXPRESS WARRANTY; there is no warranty of MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE or NONINFRINGEMENT of the rights of others.


So you can use that minimal copyright statements and avoid the problematic text.
