We do include a COPYING file in both as well as It seems that neither of those includes this file in the extension bundle though.

As far as I understand (please correct me if I'm wrong Kai), there is no need to bundle a copy of the license with the build. It's generated code anyway, not the source code that is subject to the license, and the license is stated on the AMO page.

As part of this change we've added a COPYING file to adblockplusui in

Whether or not the file should be included in the extension build seems to be up to Kai to decide then.
