There is an Emacs mode out there for the Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
program Ansys, the file is  called ansys-mode.el and there it's
written:

;;; Copyright (C) 1997 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

;; Author: Tim Read <address@hidden>
;; Author: Geoff Foster <address@hidden>

So it looks to me that they at least intended to give the copyright to
the FSF.
