I want to write Copyright on some screen shots being used at a conference to protect against future copies.

I have seen this written in various ways, including:

COMPANY NAME YYYY
COMPANY NAME YYYY - YYYY
COMPANY NAME YYYY - YYYY all rights reserved

Whats the correct way? Should I use the year the work was created or the current year or both ?

Thanks.

For printed or "static" (e.g. PNG, PDF, etc) content, use the date it was created.

For a dynamic website use 2005-nnnn where 2005 is the year of first publishing and nnnn is dynamically updated on every page view using the PHP date function. Don't use JS as searchengines will not see that text.

Copyright is automatic as I understand it and there is no need to use a copyright notice or date at all. Having said that I use this format to reinforce it " COMPANY NAME".

yeah BDW you're right, copyright notices are irrelevant. But anyways I put a little &copy;<?php date("Y")?> in my footers. Old habit. But on the same line I also toss in a link to my ToS and legal disclaimer stuff, and it looks coherent.

Copyright is indeed automatic. But having one's copyright notice on an image can be extremely helpful when notifying a plagiarist's host. "See? There's my name and copyright notice right in the image and the article's coding!"

At least, I have found this to be the case.

Any though on the data inside the image's IPTC, comments, etc?
