The advertising clause has nothing to do with Microsoft not putting the
copyright notice somewhere in the source and manuals and other
distributed documentation. The URL has a link explaining exactly what

So was Matt, remember that the UCB nullified the advertising clause in
their BSDL revision a year or two ago (perhaps longer already).
Microsoft would still be violating the license if they don't have that
