Thats the exact problem with few licenses I know of.

Apache - "You must cause any modified files to carry prominent notices
stating that You changed the files"

GPL - "The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
it, and giving a relevant date."

Is there any license out there that puts it in a better way ?
