[dev] UTF-8 copyright symbol

Dwm, surf, and probably more suckless projects contain the copyright
symbol as UTF-8 character. In most cases, if not always, it is the only
non-ASCII character in those files.

I suggest to replace it with ``Copyright'' or ``Copyright (c)''.
(``(c)'' alone is not enough from the lawyer POV, AFAIK.)

Although most modern software can deal with UTF-8 chars, why use them
when not necessary? In this case, we'll not lose anything but may avoid

What speaks against?
