New class creation from editor has Epic copyright
I notice that new code files I generate using the editor: File->Add code to project has the following.
// Copyright 1998-2014 Epic Games, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
My question is if I write any custom code is this code truly copyright Epic Games? (Don't know the answer per the license)
Then to follow up if it generally is not then whould this epic copyright be removed from the new code generation? If you do not remove it then it is my responsibility to make sure I remove it and any code I write isn't accidentally copyright of epic games.
You can feel free to delete that copyright notice. The feature of inserting the copyright notice dates back to before the public release of UE4 and it doesn't belong there now. Code you create is owned by you.

The copyright notice is actually configurable on a per-project basis.
If you to go "Edit -> Project Settings", then under "Game -> Description" there's a text box to let you enter the "Copyright Notice" for your project.

I believe there's no problem with that copyright lines, I mean, I think you can make commercial games even if you modiy the files with that lines; however let's wait for an official response.
