Our IPR Policy says that we have to put the following text to our specs.

I have made one sample of such as:


As a side note, we need to put the copyright to the specs as well.
All rights reserved is the default I think, but that is not suitable for us
because it should be freely copiable, distributable, and translatable etc.
For making it copiable and distributable, CC-BY-ND would do.
We do not want a derivative works apart from translation,
something like CC-BY-DN with special permission to translate to
any other languages than English seems to be what we want, I guess.
