Clark C. Evans <cce at clarkevans.com> pointed me out license is not
enought explicit and that it only hurts license proliferation.

I think license doesn't only hurt proliferation, because there is no
OSI approved license that would allow removing all copyright and other notices.

More explicit license text:
"This work is provided 'as-is', without any express or implied warranty,
to the utmost extent permitted by applicable law. In no event shall the
authors be held liable for any damages arising from this work.

Permission is granted to anyone to:
 - use, copy, modify, distribute this work for any purpose with or without fee.
 - modify or remove this notices and authors.

authors name <authors contact>"

I hope this is better.
It is composed from parts of well known licenses like ISC, MirOS and zlib.
