being a Team Review Team Trainee I stumbled upon a theme review
guideline that is somewhat ambiguous:


  Themes are required to declare copyright and license information as
specified by the applicable license, e.g.:
  "Twenty Fourteen WordPress Theme, Copyright 2014 WordPress.org"
  "Twenty Fourteen is distributed under the terms of the GNU GPL"

Do I understand it right, that this only applies to themes that *have* a
copyright and license information ("if a theme has a copyright, then do
it this way…") or does that mean, each theme *needs* a copyright and
license information ("Themes are required to declare copyright!")?

My knowledge is, a Copyright registration is not mandatory

Could someone give me a hand and explain, how it is meant … and probably
rephrase it in the guidelines to make it less ambiguous?

Thank you,
Bego (@pixolin)
