It commonly has "name of the author"

I also had the fun scripting to parse out the different licenses (and 
convert to a LaTeX format for 68 printed pages) for a product I sell. It 
has over 100 different BSD and MIT licenses and 26 advertising clauses 
"This product includes software developed ..."

I just realized that I listed different cases (like "author" versus 
"Author") as different licenses too, but I think that is only a few.
