Detailed copyright files can be generated by cme. You can either run 
"cme update dpkg-copyright " [1] or "scan-copyrights" [2] . (you need to 
install cme and lib-config-model-dpkg-perl)

The first one tries its best to merge current copyright with existing debian/copyright file. 
The second one outputs on stdout coalesced copyright information 
gathered from source files.

Neither tools are perfect, but they produce information quite close 
to the required result.
