Not being a Debian maintainer myself, I don't really feel entitled to say what
you should do or not do about the changelog.
Pragmatically, if the Ubuntu history is relevant to Debian (which I think
could be the case in some cases) it would make sense to me if you retain it,
otherwise why would you ?
If it is just to recognise the work the previous maintainer has done, you can
simply add a "thanks" entry to the changelog.
But about the copyright, why would you want to make it anew ?
If its not correct or complete (it shouldn't but of course people may make
mistakes) just correct it or add what you need, as you do with the rest of
