I've just received a reply from Christian Bizouard, the new head of the
IERS Earth Orientation Center.

He agrees with my proposal to add a copyright notice to the IERS leap
second file, which expresses that the file can freely be copied, and
asks for a proposal for an appropriate wording.

I'm also not neither too familiar with legal stuff concerning copyright,
nor is English my native language, so eventually someone can propose a
simple sentence which can be added to the leap second file.
