To be honest I don't remember correctly cause that was since before
2008, but I remember vaguely that I wanted to do something and I was
not allowed to because of some rules related to this big (blue)
company :D, so I thought it is better to bring that up again maybe
someone already know more details or an answer

I do think they need a proper license header (the file I quickly checked [1] did not have
that). I'm not aware of a way to tell Eclipse to add such headers automatically, so you might
have to do that by hand or some script.
