[EP-tech] Licence information in Bazaar / plugin files

Bit of a non-techie question - but one that is in our domain.
I'm making some updates to the UKETD_DC (UK eTheses and Dissertations) export plugin:
The changes will be issued as a Pull Request on the 3.3 branch, and I will also be making them into a Bazaar package.
The file already contains some copyright information from the British Library (who were involved with creating the initial export format):
Copyright (C) British Library Board, St. Pancras, UK
GNU General Public License v2 (or later)
At the end of the file (https://github.com/eprints/eprints/blob/3.3/perl_lib/EPrints/Plugin/Export/OAI_UKETD_DC.pm#L369-L394)
it also has the 'standard' EPrints statements:
Copyright 2000-2011 University of Southampton.
GNU Lesser General Public License - v3 or later.
I was going to leave all these statements in as-is, and not add any of my own - but ten I wondered if this was actually a 'correct' thing to do - or whether I should be adding any additional information?
Obviously it'll still be GNU Lesser General Public License v3 or later, but what about the two copyright statements? Do they already conflict?
