    Hi

    The statements don't say much really, one just shows how long the site has been live for.

    Technically, your site is copyrighted whether you state it or not.

    There's some good reading here:

    This should be the information you seek.

The dates that you see in a copyright statement do not refer to the dates that the owner's material will expire and become public domain - they actually refer to the dates that the material was created and/or modified.

    Expiry of copyright varies depending on the country. Here in Australia it is 70 years after the death of the author and so the date for the start of the copyright provides no information on when it is due to expire.

    Not all copyrights are always enforced by the author. The person who wrote "Happy Birthday to you" would have become the richest person in the world if they insisted on collecting fees from everyone who sings it. I forget how many years there are still to go on that copyright.
