I believe you are mixing up things here:
We had a discussion in the past where you (most likely correctly)
argued that no copyright notice is necessary to "get" (I don't know
a better word) copyright, and I said it is still nice(r) to have copyright
notices on new files written by a developer. This is not what this
discussion is about.

I sincerely hope you are not implying that it is ok to remove
"(c) Jean-Baptiste Kempf" from the top of GPL (or LGPL) files
you wrote when copying them into another open-source project.
