It's not a matter of credit, but rather long-standing copyright and
trademark usage standards, possibly US-specific but I've seen it done
similarly in the UK and Germany.  It's common practice to state
copyrights and trademark ownership in proximity to their initial usage
or presentation to a user.  For comparison, I find such notices stating
copyright and trademark ownership on the bottom of my IBM laptop, and a
Dell keyboard I just picked up off my desk.  We shouldn't remove this
notice, especially on the opening screen for the installer.  Good
question though!
