Excellent!

I'll start addressing this in a number of stages.

1) Create COPYRIGHT file

2) Remove IBM binary copyrights (the static final copyrightNotice field
   in most Java files)

3) Change notice at top of each Java file to match the resolution.

Steps 2 and 3 most likely will be broken up into multiple commits.
