I'm not sure what that update section talks about. It says the copyright has changed, but I think they mean the license. Presumably the original license was the original BSD license, but has now been updated to be the modified BSD license. I think it's better to confirm this with the copyright holders.

update section might be talking about the following announcement from year 1999 (link found from )
: July 22, 1999
: To All Licensees, Distributors of Any Version of BSD:
: As you know, certain of the Berkeley Software Distribution ("BSD") source
: code files require that further distributions of products containing all or
: portions of the software, acknowledge within their advertising materials
: that such products contain software developed by UC Berkeley and its
: contributors.
: Specifically, the provision reads:
: " * 3. All advertising materials mentioning features or use of this software
:       *    must display the following acknowledgement:
:       *    This product includes software developed by the University of
:       *    California, Berkeley and its contributors."
: Effective immediately, licensees and distributors are no longer required to : include the acknowledgement within advertising materials. Accordingly, the : foregoing paragraph of those BSD Unix files containing it is hereby deleted
: in its entirety.
: William Hoskins
: Director, Office of Technology Licensing
: University of California, Berkeley
