While reading the venv source I noticed a typo in the copyright/license line (“20011”); I propose a patch that removes that line in favor of the customary “Licensed to the PSF” line, which is IMO much clearer (I never understand what the combination of “all rights reserved” and a free software license means).  I have added a comment to preserve the mention of your authorship (as well as a reference to virtualenv’s authors, which sounds fair to me—but maybe it’s good enough that the PEP mention them).  I do hope this does not seem disrespectful to you; I really appreciate your work and don’t wish to diminish your merit, but I think the notice is strange and should be fixed.

Another minor edit in the diff is the removal of an obsolete mention of pythonv; could be another commit if you prefer.
