documentation on copyright headers?

Hi Guix,

The "The Perfect Set-Up" chapter of guixes manual describes how to set
up copyright.el to support the process of inserting/updating ones
copyright header; however it doesn't answer:

- why a copyright header has to be inserted
- if a copyright header has to be inserted for all files that are
  subject to changes (is there a treshold? can it be left out for minor
  changes to files etc.?) of a sent patch.

I'm not too knowledgable in copyright law to answer these things myself
and would guess, that explaining this briefly could be useful in guixes
documentation on contributions.

Kind regards,

Wilko Meyer
