Thanks for taking your time to report this issue and help making Ubuntu better.

The license.txt file does indeed seem to be missing, and I was able to reproduce this issue with openshot-qt 2.4.1+dfsg1-2 on Ubuntu Cosmic. I was also able to reproduce it in Debian Sid, so I have forwarded it to the Debian maintainer, see the attached bug watch for details.
