How about this:

The VB Accelerator controls have the following notice in them:

' Name: vbAccelerator S-Grid Control
' Author: Steve McMahon (steve@vbaccelerator.com)
' Date: 22 December 1998
' Copyright (c) 1998-1999 Steve McMahon for vbAccelerator
' Visit vbAccelerator - advanced free source code for VB programmers
' http://vbaccelerator.com
' A serious VB grid control. Can be used to replace the ListView and
MSFlexGrid, and
' can emulate the Outlook message list view.
' Features:
 ... elided for space ...

As well as the notes he puts on his website:

* You are free to use and modify any of the code on the site, but not
to distribute modified versions of my downloads, ActiveX DLLs or OCXs
with the same filename and/or ProgIds. If you have made changes which
you think are beneficial, or have bug reports, then you can email me
(steve@vbaccelerator.com) and I will do my utmost to get the a new
version on the site.

* You can freely distribute the zips available from this site to other
ones, but you must distribute them in their original state and
particularly keep the information and disclaimer text file with the
zip (if it has one!). Notification would be greatly appreciated!

* You can freely distribute any compiled code on the site, or any
products you build using the code.

* If you wish to distribute the source code files by any other means
(i.e. if you want to include it on a CD or any other software media)
then the EXPRESS PERMISSION of the author is REQUIRED.

Any VB source of VBAccelerator controls will follow the first provision.
Any other binary from VBAccelerator would just be the DLL.
Mark said something about talking to Steve about getting permission for the
last provision.

All of the OSS stuff I do (on my own time obviously) is copyrightable by
whoever wants it under the SVN license.
While I may be sending email from this address for convenience sake, I'm
clearly not getting paid to do this stuff. :)
