It appears that https://hpiers.obspm.fr/iers/bul/bulc/README now contains a
Creative Commons notice which covers the entire `bulc` directory:

Based on the Wayback Machine and the directory listing at
https://hpiers.obspm.fr/iers/bul/bulc/ it appears this change was made on

The previous 2017-04-11 version of the notice, strictly speaking, only
pertained to the README file itself, and not to the rest of the directory
or its subdirectories:

This has been going along for about as long!  It still falls short, though.
of the ideal that the leap-seconds.list file itself also contain the notice
so we (and others) don't have to duplicate it elsewhere:

It also doesn't necessarily allay the other concerns.  But it's definitely
some progress, at least.
