This isn't fair to remove previous Copyright statements, so I can't
merge this patch as is.

That said, I don't think it worth to keep this information in per file
basis which will grow indefinitely.  FMHO, it would be better to simply
remove the Copyright marks from all these files and maintain one file at
the root of the project dedicated for this purpose.

We need the approval from John, added in cc.
