If I use code from a GPL'd project, where should I put its copyright notice? Would just putting it in a README be fine?

You can only incorporate code from a GPL project if you project itself is GPL.  Therefore you need to add the GPL notice as the header to ALL of your source files, in addition to providing a copy of the license with your source and your executable.

I understand that but, do I have to put the name of the project it's from and if so where do I put it.
