Subject RE: [VOTE] Require a copyright notice in source headers
Date Fri, 19 Jul 2013 20:46:04 GMT
Was there a recent lawsuit regarding this matter?
What's the benefit of putting the Copyright notice on each source file vs the current Notice
again?

Apologies if that was already mentioned- the original full thread was quite long and I did
not follow it completely...
