Copyright Statement in C++ header files

Autodesk Fusion 360 SDK header files contain a copyright statement like the following statement (I copied and pasted it from base.h):

 

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
//
// (C) Copyright 2015 by Autodesk, Inc.
//
// The information contained herein is confidential, proprietary to Autodesk,
// Inc., and considered a trade secret as defined in section 499C of the
// penal code of the State of California. Use of this information by anyone
// other than authorized employees of Autodesk, Inc. is granted only under a
// written non-disclosure agreement, expressly prescribing the scope and
// manner of such use.
//
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 

I think the contents of these files should not be considered "trade secret", because the files are installed by the Fusion 360 installer, and I guess they can be used by developers to better understand the program or for debugging purposes.

 

Please compare it with the following copyright statement borrowed from Autodesk 3ds Max SDK (I copied and pasted it from Types.h):

 

//
// Copyright 2010 Autodesk, Inc. All rights reserved.
//
// Use of this software is subject to the terms of the Autodesk license
// agreement provided at the time of installation or download, or which
// otherwise accompanies this software in either electronic or hard copy form.

You're correct.  That shouldn't be in the code samples.  We'll get that corrected.  Thanks for pointing it out.

Hi Brian,

 

Many thanks for your answer. For me, your answer is the solution, but I don't know whether it is better to click on "Accept as Solution" button or wait for correction. Would you please let me know which approach works better for this forum?
