Dear Bernhard, all
Since the days I am with ETH (and some years before -- so about since
year 2000), the 3-clause BSD license (following my signature below), has
been used for the distributions of A2 (aka ActiveOberon / Bluebottle /
AOS) and most Oberon releases that I know of or worked with (such as,
for example, the PlugIn Oberon System, in big parts by Emil Zeller).
Normally, such copyright text should come with the software / source
code that you have. If you don't have the copyright text, you probably
have to ask the main author. Sorry for being so vague, but I cannot
speak for all contributors of the various Oberon implementations.
