I think that's wrong in general, and it's routine for corporate legal
departments to insist on specific boilerplate copyright notices when
OSS code is contributed.

Copying code and then removing copyright notices is frowned upon
independently as well.

While you can probably talk for your own copyright notice, I'm not sure
it's true of the two other historic copyright notices that were copied.

So I think it's best practice to preserve all copyright notices as-is.

Thanks,

Ingo
