Bug Description

Review comment:

"One small nit I noticed: if the copyright file isn't there or can't be read then you get a blank view. It'd be nice to return some informational message in this case."

<>: "If the text is not available, the sentence 'Sorry, this license could not be displayed.' should appear instead, and System Settings should automatically report it as a RecoverableError."
