Purely in case anybody wants to complain that it shouldn't be moved 
between different servers etc.

Nobody's property [double-checks using Wp]. I think that in the case of 
the IBM operating systems it's a fairer description than (the 
frequently-applied) public domain, since IBM never explicitly donated 
them to the public, their creation was not funded by the public purse, 
and their ownership status if heavily modified is unclear.
