And, in particular, for GNU, http://www.gnu.org/prep/maintain.html#SEC7
says

   You should maintain a legally valid copyright notice and a license
   notice in each nontrivial file in the package. (Any file more than ten
   lines long is nontrivial for this purpose.) This includes header files
   and interface definitions, makefiles, scripts, other data files used 
   in building or running the program, documentation files, and any
   supporting files. If a file has been explicitly placed in the public
   domain, then instead of a copyright notice, it should have a notice
   saying explicitly that it is in the public domain.
