Not entirely true. Only significant changes are owned by B. De minis and
obvious changes don't attract an independent copyright.
More generally on this topic, the requirement to include the copyright
and licence in the permissive licences is only really codifying best
practice. That's especially true for open source derivatives, where the
implied warranty that the supplier has the right to issue the end user
licence, or even distribute the software, is being waived.
