AFAIK there are a lot of packages without this notice. Is this
necessary nowadays? If not: I'm no a great fan of it because I don't
think that the "craft" of packaging something is worth to be
protected by copyright (or it's not even possible; Austrian law e.g.
demands a "Schöpfungshöhe" / "Threshold of Originality" and I don't
think that this demand is fulfilled by using dh-make-perl and dh_*)

Anyway, I have no objections to adding such a stanza either ;-)

See above.

No, it's good to check packages thoroughly.
