+1 to the utf-8 coding header and the © symbol. Red Hat's default text file encoding is utf-8 and I think the header looks professional. I don't know why pep-8 says not to use a mechanism they provide, but this is on of the few times I disagree with it.

It's not buying us much outside of the copyright symbol in the header itself; there's nowhere in the code otherwise (that I've seen) that uses utf-8 characters.
