[Owasp-leaders] Copyright statement recommendations

Leaders,

We've had some questions about the ZAP copyright statement we use in our
code, which is now variations on:
/*
 * Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) and its related class files.
 *
 * ZAP is an HTTP/HTTPS proxy for assessing web application security.
 *
 * Copyright 2016 The ZAP Development Team
 *
 * Licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0 (the "License");
 * you may not use this file except in compliance with the License.

 */

Is "The ZAP Development Team" a reasonable term to use, or is problematic
as this is not a legal entity?
We typically just give the year the relevant file was created, but should
we use the range of years ZAP has been around (ie "2010-2016") and update
every file every year?
Any other thoughts or recommendations?

Cheers.

Simon
