For some reason (only) the quotes around "Larger Work" in the original license text [0] use the a fancy Unicode (0x201C/0x201D) left/right pair as opposed to a plain-vanilla ASCII double quotes. These double quotes are UTF-8 encoded. This happened to have rendered correctly in at least some browsers during the code reviews for jdk-8208183, but not all of our tools display / understand UTF-8 and this makes working with these files more difficult.

We should replace both of the quote marks around "Larger Work" with plain-vanilla ASCII double quotes. This will make it consistent with the other usages of double quotes in the same text.
