as Jonas already pointed out, the Author and the Copyright Holder of a
work are not necessarily identical. There are e.g. some GNU projects
that require copyright assignment from code authors. The relevant part,
however, is the Copyright, whereas the Authorship is merely a nice
extra information (unless the license requires to explicitely credit
the Authors).
