Doesn't work for me, at least with MapSource 6.15.7. Only the MapSource
copyright is shown, but not the ones of an installed map.

Attached is the new patch from me, which is able to change both: the
copyright message for the device and what I call "license text".
The first one works fine with my Garmin devices. Since my
Mapsource version doesn't display the license text, I'm not really
able to test that part. But by looking at the images with a hex
editor, it looks good, the new text ist there.
