> Therefore I question the transfer of copyright in this case but IANAL.

Yeah it makes no sense there, at least in Germany or France where moral rights can not be transferred (and corporations can not own works, at best they enjoy an exclusive license to the work of an employee). SQLite also had some trouble at least in france, because moral rights not being transferrable means an author can not put his own work in the public domain (the work will fall in the public domain after ~life+70y, but can't be put there)
