Given a repository
github.com/x in github that is licenced with Apache 2.0. On their source files they have
Copyright  [Evil Corp] Licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0 (the "License"); you may not use this file except in compliance with the License.

Say that I now create a fork of github
github.com/x and add some new files of my own under
My Corp. I want to release this under Apache 2.0 to the public.
- Do I need to add an Apache header
Copyright  [My Corp]to all of my new contributed source files?
Evil Corpmerges my fork/pull request do they have to display my Apache header with
Copyright  [My Corp]?
- What happens if I change existing files from
Evil Corp, do I need to change or add to their Apache header?
