I'm not a lawyer nor play one on TV. That said, I talk to a lot of them
and have worked for firms that have to deal with this sort of issue. Your
milage may vary ....

This is from some one who used to work for TPC who took out a copyright on
every page in the phone directory.
As I understand it from my legal folks, it is all post the Franklin/Apple
case. Making sure all object files also have legally recognized set of
stamps in them.
I suspect one can argue with the judge that a single copyright notice are
coving all of the SCCS stamps on from all the files shipped in the release
(source or binary). But just like putting a copyright on every page in the
phone book, I think the argument is that a page can ripped from the phone
book and a binary and can copied from a system. Because of the 'motion'
of the object, making sure every object has a mark is best.
