Does it really matter? I could create any domain and add some random company
as copyright. How would you know the copyrighted company is real then? The
only way would be just google it. That's it. But still the site can be faked
if it is really necessary.
I thought these things are a matter of trust. I submitted a patchset from my
personal e-mail, but created it while working for the company. It's highly
possible, that my personal email is going to be mine for much longer time, then
I'll be working in the company. In this case, the better way to declare it as
primary email, instead of the company one, so to have a longer support. Isn't it?
Why would I need to fake a copyrighted company anyway?
