It is the collective work that is copyright ASF. This is stated in the
notice file. We can only change/remove copyright notices in very specific
circumstances.

http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html should answer all your questions.

Looking at some other files there are a number of issues with copyright
notices that need to be fixed in addition to the removal of the COPYRIGHT file.

Therefore, I vote -1 for this contribution as it does not comply with the
published ASF source headers policy. I am happy for this contribution to
remain in trunk providing that the necessary changes are made in a
reasonable time scale.
