I also see that Andrew Haines is listed as the copyright holder in the FPC source, while the original file listed Jazarsoft.  I know Andrew developed the chm support in FPC/Lazarus, but it seems as if he isn't the original author of this unit.

I probably pasted the license by mistake when I was adding it to the
