Pcopyright-with-old-dh-make-debian-copyright

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.244. That is the most recent version we know about.

The copyright file contains the incomplete Debian packaging copyright boilerplate from older versions of dh_make. (C) alone is not considered a valid copyright notice in some countries. The word Copyright or the © symbol should be used instead or in addition to (C).

Copyright notices like this are, in any country that's a signatory to the Berne Convention, not required to claim copyright on a work, but their presence may allow claiming additional damages should a copyright case go to court. If you provide a notice, you may as well provide one that's legally recognized in a broader range of countries.
