My non-authoritative opinion is that if a project is licensed under the
ASF license then the source files should have the ASF copyright.
However, I do not know if this is inline or not with the corporate CLA
that Derby was contributed under.

I took the date from some of the files that I was going over.
I was a little bit hesitant even for 2001-2004. I prefer just 2004 since
that is the year derby came under the ASF license.

I will submit a modified patch when a consensus is reached on these two
questions.
