Flake8 Copyright plugin
Checks for copyright notices in all python files. It runs a simple regular expression search for strings like:

<author> can be anything unless you specify it with the
copyright-author option (see below).

pip install flake8-copyright

with this option. Default:
%(author)sis replaced by the contents of
