Sorry to be a pedant, but I think you will find that lack of copyright
notice does not imply lack of copyright. (The US used to have this but
adopted the provisions of the Berne Convention in 1989 joining more
enlightened countries).  See
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright#Copyright_notices for a summary.

I would guess the MAC OS/X file is an older version of the IANA
port-numbers file.

The IANA file itself also doesn't have a copyright notice, so we might
simply use it ...
