I'm one of the developers of the open source network protocol analyzer Wireshark.
I would like to include the IANA list of assigned port numbers  into Wireshark, so it will display the "human readable" service name instead of only the TCP/UDP/... port number. The file in the Wireshark package will be updated from time to time with the IANA file, so it won't get outdated too much.
Unfortunately, I couldn't find any copyright / license notice of the port numbers file, so I would like to ask if there are any legal problems to include it into Wireshark. Wireshark itself is open source software released under the GPL, so I hope there are no problems.
If you need any further informations about Wireshark, just feel free to ask ...
Regards, Ulf Lamping
