I'm using a library that is licensed under a BSD-2 like license and I am wanting to override one of the methods they use and modify it slightly.
My question is, when I copy the code from the method what do I need to include in the comments for said method? Do I have to go all out and include the whole license there or can I input something more simple?
This is the license they have at the top of all the library files:
