Automatic, Always Up-To-Date Copyright

I found a great online script to create a copyright notice for your website that will automatically update each year. WebWeaver.nu has a copyright generator. You fill in the form fields with the following details:

  • Copyright Owner - website's name, company name or your name
  • Indicate Yes or No - would you like to include the year your website started? (ie © 2000 - 2007)
  • If yes, what is the year your website was first created?
  • Indicate Yes or No to add " - All Rights Reserved " to your copyright information

Click the Generate Button and your code will appear in the on screen box. Just copy and paste into your html code.
