I think you could do this if you're going to use ASP, and call the CSS in
the ASP template. Then your ASP template can contain the copyright notice,
and any other static information.

Actually, Michelle, I'm getting confused, here. Just what is the desired
effect? A copyright statement as a comment in the CSS file, or a piece of
boilerplate displaying a copyright notice on each web page using the
particular CSS file?

I'm open to correction on this, but I don't think there's anything at all
you can put into a CSS file which will actually be displayed by many
browsers. There's the "content" property to the "before" and "after"
pseudo-elements, supported by very few browsers, which would work rather
like this:

body:after {content: "My Copyright notice: This is mine, mine, mine, and
you can't have it 'cause it's mine!"}

which would have the effect of placing that notice after the body section
of every page using that CSS file, in those few browsers that supported it.
Everyone else would remain blissfully unaware of the notice.

FWIW, I haven't found a browser version that supports this, but perhaps
there's one out there -- I'll admit to not doing exhaustive testing on
this. Once I discovered that Explorer 4.5 and Netscape 4.08 didn't support
it, I didn't figure there was much point going on with the test.
