Got the same reservations myself, and implications are unclear,
despite dealing with corporate and vendor software and service
contracts and agreements for decades.

EUPL - European Union Public Licence - recommended for EU/government software
and content in the "public domain":

"European Union Public Licence
The Original Work is provided under the terms of this Licence when the Licensor (as
defined below) has placed the following notice immediately following the copyright
notice for the Original Work:

Licensed under the EUPL"

and maybe a copy of the above link, which provides the document in 22 EU languages.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
