Copyright notice in main.c generated by Cube.

Since the programmers are supposed to munge main.c into their own project, Cube generated code being just a starting point, why would ST put in a copyright notice that takes ownership of the code?

This is the transition between my code and ST's code. I don't think that main.c is ST's code after the first line of code in the USER CODE areas has been altered.

Please remove the copyright block from main.c.
