[Development] Copyright changes

I discussed with Tuukka Turunen and his opinion was that even something is not developed further, but it is available, copyrights should be the correct ones.

But as said this is not the most urgent issue and priority is low. 

And sorry if the examples I used were fixed already. I got those examples from Janne Anttila over a month ago and this was just pending in my emails :/

I hope that someone more technical person could reply to Laszlo if "license checker bot" would be possible or a good idea?

several of these repositories are just dead (and will soon be moved and
marked as such once we figure out which ones exactly these are). does it
still make sense to adjust copyrights in these?

Is that wrong? What if no one pays someone to work on a change?

Also, perhaps you could make a qtqa checker script for these, run them, and publish the result so we can see the issues at a centralized place? For instance, we meant to fix everything in QtSerialPort a while ago, so I am wondering why it is still on your list. I guess this is a generic issue. Perhaps there could be a license checker bot, or just directly integrated into an existing bot like the sanity/doc checker?
