I don't recall having experienced this issue lately.

Copyright hints changes _do_ occur frequently, but due to refactoring 
and (mostly) improvements to licensecheck which I have recently taken 
over as upstream maintainer.

Would be great if you could check if this issue still exist, and if so 
point me to some concrete case that I can inspect in detail.
