The above is quoted from a BSD licensed COPYING file. How can I "reproduce the above copyright" when I distribute my app in binary form? Should I put the COPYING file content in some Credit/About screen of my app or what? Thanks!

See for example how Apple does it.

On iOS you can reach a Copyright menu inside the settings menu. It's a rather long entry, listing all copyrights, including BSD licenses.

yes, include it in the About screen. And/or include a copy of the file in the distribution directory of your application (or what some applications do, create a directory called "licenses" containing all such license files for every library/framework they use.
