This is incorrect.  If the binary includes copyright statements to
display them, you may not remove them (see §5 (d) in the GPL
version 3).

In addition to license terms, you have to take moral rights into
account.  In many countries, software authors have an inalienable
right to be named as authors, like any other author.
