First of all, "ReactOS Technology" is not a legal person that can 
reprsent copyright. A copyright is registered to a legal entitiy (such 
as a person, or company). You can't register a copyright to a 
"technology". So at the very least you should say "Based on work done by 
the ReactOS Foundation, (c) 2000-2005". Even if that were the case, I 
have not I have not submitted my work under the ReactOS Foundation, so I 
retain copyright. In that case you are misrepresenting the valid 
copyright owner...
