The full text of the license must exist somewhere in the distribution.
You'd probably want to call it "LICENSE", for example.  For what to put in
each file, read the bottom of LICENSE-2.0, the section that says,
"APPENDIX: How to apply the Apache License to your work."

It's more than a one-liner, but a lot smaller than including the original
license in every file, as was the preferred option before.
