Regex to detect copyright in comments
Use this field to type, view, or edit the regular expression that will be used to find copyright notices in comments.
Note that this regular expression should match the above specified copyright notice. Otherwise instead of updating copyright notices, IntelliJ IDEA will insert new ones.
Allow replacing copyright if old copyright matches
Use this field to type or edit the regular expression pattern that will be recognized in the existing copyright notice and allow replacing it with the new one. For example, if you specify the following pattern for year indication: 20[0-1][0-6], updates will affect all the copyrights with the indications of years 2000-2006 and 2010-2016.
