The amd-ucode package doesn't contain the license for the microcode. It's currently packaged in linux-firmware as /usr/share/licenses/linux-firmware/LICENSE.amd-ucode. It should be moved to the amd-ucode package.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
linux-firmware 20180821.1d17c18-2
amd-ucode 20180821.1d17c18-2

Steps to reproduce:
pacman -Qo /usr/share/licenses/linux-firmware/LICENSE.amd-ucode

Small correction:
The license file should be copied not moved to amd-ucode. linux-firmware contains /usr/lib/firmware/amd-ucode/* that also need the license.
