NetBeans: Adding copy right information

What I am trying to do is a very trivial task. I have to add the copy rights notice (GNU) that my company issues to all the Java sources that I have. I use the netBeans and I have spent a day and a half in trying to figure out HOW I can include the same into NetBeans, so that existing classes can have the copy right notice injected on the top and the new classes that I may create (right click -> Java Class) have the same.

Any clues?! Google failed, netbeans mail arhive failed in solving my problem..

For new classes you can probably just change the templates used to create them.
I don't know how it's done in NB but in Eclipse that's an almost trivial task.

For existing classes I think you'd best write a small program that does it for you as otherwise you're stuck with a large copy-paste action.
