    Look like Yahoo has updated it to 2004 but Google still stick to 2003.

    What about you?

    Do you really need to change it yearly? (serious question, here).

    I have 1996 since that was the year the site was developed. Never considered changing it.

    Google lists only the current year in their notice. Personally, it gives me something to do once a year. LOL!

    On some sites I use the copyright years, on others just All rights reserved.

    Google put © 2003 instead of © 1995-2003 because that will save them 5 bytes. They always think of ways to reduce their file size didn't they?

    Shouldn't the copyright year should match the year the document was created or last edited?

    I like having the old year to show the site has been around awhile.

    That's what I thought. Hence, mine is still 1996. Looking at that though, some might think that was the last time I used it. Maybe I'll put 1996 - 2004.

    Heck..doesn't matter...people just steal my stuff anyway

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Have you changed footer from © 2003 to © 2004? <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    I'll probably bother with that in a week or so. No big hurry! I mainly bother to keep it from seeming like the site hasn't been updated in years.

    That's always what I think when I see such old dates...

    I like the idea of the gif.. when I first made my pages I made most of the pages static and now that they're all indexed with a PR of 3 or 4 I don't want to switch to another format such as SSI or PHP for includes and lose it for however long it takes google to see the change.

    All new pages I make are such that I can use php, ssi, static, or asp with the option of switching between each type with no change in PR

    But yeah I changed to 2003 - 2004.

    Thanks for the reminder.

    Heyder Quote: "Shouldn't the copyright year should match the year the document was created or last edited?"

    It is supposed to mean that, but back in the book, paper world, online it's really only so that your cust's can see you have new products, content, etc., and perhaps have been around a few years. Unless you have name recognition like Yahoo, Google then you only neeed "2004", Period

    Legally does not really matter online, since people copy your site and steal your money with parasites at the same time.

    I use Copyright © 2002 - 2004 ------------.com All Rights Reserved. At least it scares those that don't know the requirements and dont read the law below.

    From copyright.gov

    The use of a copyright notice is no longer required under U.S. law, although it is often beneficial. Because prior law did contain such a requirement, however, the use of notice is still relevant to the copyright status of older works. read more...notrequired

    What is a copyright notice? How do I put a copyright notice on my work?
    A copyright notice is an identifier placed on copies of the work to inform the world of copyright ownership that generally consists of the symbol or word “copyright (or copr.),” the name of the copyright owner, and the year of first publication, e.g., ©2003 John Doe. While use of a copyright notice was once required as a condition of copyright protection, it is now optional. Use of the notice is the responsibility of the copyright owner and does not require advance permission from, or registration with, the Copyright Office. See Circular 3, Copyright Notice, for requirements for works published before March 1, 1989, and for more information on the form and position of the copyright notice. read more... copyrights

    I'm aware of the htaccess options to parse html and may add it if my host would allow(I'm at under a dozen pages so it's not a big deal YET). I do like my new site structure though.. clean bookmarks and all

    I've read that adding html to the parsing may add to cpu overhead, these shared hosting providers can be really picky about that sort of thing(especially message boards) due to hundreds of other sites being on the same server.

    As for copyright notice, that may be the case for US law but I add them to pages to cover other countries that would abide by it. If someone is out to steal your content it's not going to stop them initially anyways.

    There's also that bit about websites not being a proper entity to identify as the copyright holder unless it is also your business name.. something like that.. so I use my real name next to the copyright notice.
