Description: There should be some convenient way for to set up things so that PRINTCOPYRIGHT automatically knows that XEROX is the owner.  I didn''t used to be asked these questions, so I assume the Jun-20 edit has something to do with this.  I''m very much against this sort of user prompting.  All Interlisp functions that don''t absolutely require user intervention (e.g. inserting a floppy into drive) should be able be capable of being fully programmatic without ASKUSER/DWIMWAIT type interfaces.
