If you have it in Trinidad NOTICE than anyone using that code will have 
to inherit your NOTICE content.

If you want to put a statement about the source of the code but you 
don't need it to be inherited by ALv2 targeted users then you better 
should put the statement in a README file or anything else that is not 
the NOTICE file.

The NOTICE purpose is to have the list of credits to be "relayed" when 
you redistribute a product or parts of a product licensed under the 
Apache License v2 terms.

At least this is what I understood so far and I'm not a lawyer.
