 Why you need explaination is to explain that you are not just
 infringing copyrights but those date and time strings are just "fact"
 not a "creation".
 No other discussion is meaningful.

+My opinion is that these patterns are not subject to copyright as 
+they are not intellectual works.
+Date formats are usually parts of languages or national traditions 
+and nobody can claim copyright on historical languages or national 
+Furthermore the date format(s) used in a specific 
+country/region/culture/language is a fact just like the official 
+currency or the official language.
+As such we can use them freely the only thing we should research is 
+that they are really facts or some of them are incorrect.
