How to set Copyright field in Widgets?



According to Widget SDK Beta 3 Release Notes:


If you omit the rim:copyright attribute from the author element in the config.xml file, during the compilation of the BlackBerry Widget application, the copyright information is set to the default value of 'Copyright (c) 2009 Research In Motion Ltd'. (DT489922)


On the BlackBerry device, I suppose this copyright information should be displayed under Options/Applications.


The problem:


I use OTA installation by clicking the .jad file created by the Widget packager. After installation there is no copyright information shown for the application, even though I set it in the rim:copyright field in the config.xml.

Opening the .jad file in an editor shows there is no copyright information in it. However, the .alx file also created by the Widget packager holds the proper copyright tag.


Should not the copyright information be included also for OTA installation?
