In System.Reflection namespace are assembly attribute classes.
Here is a sample for one of those. You can try the same with the other attributes you want to read.

Assembly executingAssembly=Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
                   AssemblyCopyrightAttribute copyright=AssemblyCopyrightAttribute.GetCustomAttribute(executingAssembly,typeof(AssemblyCopyrightAttribute)) as AssemblyCopyrightAttribute;
