The usual means that I have seen of making copyright licences accessible are to:
1) List all copyright clauses in the manual, under a single chapter. This is effectively an inventory of the licenced works used in the product.
2) List all copyright clauses in a file such as "licences.txt", which is also an inventory of licenced works used in the product.
3) Display all copyright clauses in the log file of a daemon.
4) Display the copyright clauses in the scrolling portion of a splash screen (ick!) or in the Help->About screen of a GUI
Having the licence hidden somewhere - eg as unused strings in a binary - doesn't seem to me to be "accessible in a reasonable way". Would you feel it was reasonable for a vendor to publish the instruction manual in this way?
Just by two bits worth
