Hello Fons. 

I was also curious, so I found a source for zitaretuner version 1.0.
(I'm not providing the link here; I'll send it to you)

The COPYRIGHT file clearly include the author info with its name,
email address and personal web site, and the date of the release.

It does also include your name and the date (year) of your original
contribution (if there's any). In the source code, only your name is
mentionned, as if you were the original author. I confirm the problem.

The author don't seem to understand how to use the GPL in a proper way,
at least in terms of attribution. He should make all the required
corrections and contact all the distributors.
