All reports of debian-copyright-file-uses-obsolete-national-encoding for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The Debian copyright file must be valid UTF-8, an encoding of the Unicode character set.

There are many ways to convert a copyright file from an obsoleted encoding like ISO-8859-1; you may for example use "iconv" like:

     $ iconv -f ISO-8859-1 -t UTF-8 copyright >
     $ mv copyright

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 12.5 (Copyright information) for details.
