Different people writing different files at different times making

Also, sometimes it happens that a file will start as
trivial/non-trivial, and then later modifications will change it to
non-trivial/trivial, but the patcher doesn't bother to add/remove the
copyright notice. Just like sometimes people forget to change the date
in the copyright notice.
There isn't much point in asking why this happens. If it bothers you,
then fix it. If it doesn't bother you, then don't worry about it.
