If possible, I'd rather integrate the existing code, to avoid the mess
of having umpteen alternatives.
So I'd recommend the following path:
- figure out who wrote which part of the code.
- from that, find out which part of the code is already covered by
  copyright assignments or is otherwise "trivial enough" to not need any.
- try to get assignments from the remaining people.
- if some of those can't be found or refuse to sign such paperwork,
  remove the corresponding code.  When easy or important, rewrite the code.
