Source File Preamble

We need to create some sort of a preamble to place at the start of every source file to identify it as being part of the QuickStart engine. We need to at least reference the license we're using, but what else would you suggest we put in it? I'm definitely not a legal guru.

Place it at the top of every source file. Though there are some issues as I can understand it. If you give the group the copyright you are not the owner anymore, and worse if you later release commercial code which contains any code (or very similar) you might be in trouble as the group could sue and require compensation.

That's why I'm saying we need a preamble. If the Ms-PL is explicitly stated in the preamble, it grants users rights to use the code, commercially and non-commercially.
