Next week is the start of 2012 and all your website pages should be updated to show the year 2012. Is this important?, I think yes. When a visitor to a website notices the year is still set at 2008 etc, my thought would be this site is old and not up to date.

When you change the copyright year you should also consider updating all your Website Sitemaps as well. http://www.drachsi.com/website-sitemaps.htm Great for Bing and Google, could be good for you.

Have a great 2012

You possibly have seen major company websites where the year is out of date. I thought just a reminder might help. I use Expression Web 4 and this makes it easy.

You can also keep it updated automatically via PHP using a tiny bit of code:

<?=date('Y'); ?>

This will pull it from the time on your web server.

Do you need to even put a year?

Isn't it sufficient just to put ..?

(Or is even that necessary?)

I am too used to updating the year, but apparently it should be the year from which copyright was originally published, not the current year AND/OR the years from initial publication to the current year 2002-2012. From what i read the latter is the best option.

Also the is many countries is not recognised and the UK copyright service reccomends that both the and the word be used together with the users/business name.

So either: Copyright 2004 We Love Ants Ltd or Copyright 2004-2012 We Love Ants Ltd
