Is this sort of thing wholesome?  The majority of recipes in oe-core
don't have any copyright statement and I'm not sure that adding one is
necessarily a good thing.

Out of curiosity I conducted a small survey of my current tree, which
contains 855 recipes of which 31 seem to have a copyright notice.  The
individuals and organisations asserting this copyright are:

OpenedHand Ltd (12 recipes, 2007-2008)
Intel Corporation (7 recipes, 2010-2012)
Advanced Micro Devices, Inc (4 recipes, 2004-2006)
Khem Raj (4 recipes, 2012-2013)
Wind River Ltd (1 recipe, 2012)
Matthias Hentges (1 recipe, 2007)
Red Hat, Inc (1 recipe, 2012)

OpenedHand Ltd was apparently dissolved two years ago so I guess its
copyright notices are just historical artifacts.

There's also one recipe (zisofs-tools-native) which contains the

# Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

... which seems slightly bizarre since this would mean that the recipe
in question pre-dates the rest of OE by over a decade.
