Funniest copyright license?

From a Debian bug report comes the copyright license for a file from a LaTeX package:

% This should appear in a file named diagram.tex
% Copyright 1988,1989 Michael Barr
% All commercial rights reserved. May be freely distributed
% and used with the following exceptions:
% 1. No commercial use without explicit permission.
% 2. It may not be used by any employee of a telephone
% company.
% 3. It may not be distributed without this notice.

You have to wonder what the author had against telephone companies.
