I'm assuming you are asking about automating addition of copyright
information to source files - if not please ignore me :-) :

The template-based sandbox project starter thingy I was working on
once upon a time had some functionality related to copyright info - it
might not be too hard to extend it so that it can go through an
existing project tree and add copyright info to each source file that
is missing it (based on whatever rule the inspection utility is

Alternatively, perhaps quickbook could be given the same (optional)
feature (although that would only take care of .qbk files) - while
going through the source files, it a source file is missing copyright
info, it could take the innermost enclosing document copyright
information and insert it at the top of the file as a comment.
