Wordpress does not require such a logo.  People include it voluntarily.

Regardless, if developers are removing the copyright headers from copies
of your code, what makes you think that a new license will make any
difference?  If people are willing to violate one license, they'll
violate another.  I think taking a few to court would do you a lot more
good than changing the license.
