Copyright 2006
have you updated your copyright notice yet?

just a friendly reminder to update your copyright notice. keeping this up to date shows visitors you are current and on the ball, plus you don't want your copy ripped off. check out the U.S. Copyright Office at [copyright.gov...] for info. the Copyright Basics link under About Copyright should get you started.

Example: 2006 John Doe

... and i must confess i have not yet updated mine...oops.

I've changed mine to 2009 just to be on the safe side :-)

All of mine have been done but thanks for the heads up!

Your copyright is the year the work was created. Changing it around does nothing.

For example, I wrote an article last year, its copyright is 2005. The fact that it is now 2006 is not relevant and changing the date does not change your copyright.

On my website I might have copyright 2001-2006, because items contained therein have been created from 2001 to present.

good point vegas. i also like the span of years notice. another good idea is to use your favorite scripting language date function keeping it up to date and never touching it again.
