Fix webrtc copyright boilerplate

Project Member Reported by, Oct 30 2012

Issue description

Our copyright boilerplate should look like this:
Copyright <year> The WebRTC Project Authors. All rights reserved.

It's currently:
Copyright (c) <year> The WebRTC project authors. All Rights Reserved.

We should fix all files in one go, then adjust the presubmit checks to not allow the old format.

For year, its the creation year, and should not be updated in the future.
If unknown, leave it as is.
Could use svn to get oldest year, with sed script to search/replace.

As Chromium is doing, we won't make an attempt to update existing incorrect copyright years.

Consider running webrtc thru clang-tidy to fix code style issues
