It probably has to do with when SUN got involved with UNIX. Their
original UNIX licenses were based on the concept that they would return
all of their "improvements" to the public domain ala BSD.

AFAIK it was not part of the actual license. :-)

IRIX was under System V licensing, $60 to AT&T for a workstation, $250
for a server.
