Hello Jesse,

Anything that you put on your website that is your original work is automatically copyrighted; however, that doesn't stop some people from using your materials without your permission. This is something that all webmasters experience.

What you can do is put a copyright notice on your pages (along with the copyright symbol), many people will put this in the footer of the website. Because it is not possible to edit the footer of the website at this time what you can do is put your copyright information into a Text Widget at the bottom of your page. Here is a link that will give you more information about this: Copyright Symbol.

You can enter your own copyright symbol into a text box by using the correct keyboard shortcuts:

* If you are using a PC use CTRL+ALT+C
* If you are using a Mac use Option key+g

Another thing you can do is publish your works under a license. Creative commons provides an easy way for you to choose a license for your work. Check out their license generator: Creative Commons.

I hope this helps!

If you're adding a copyright to your site, you might want to use this code to automatically update the date each year. It's been around a long time but is very handy.

And if you like a beginning to current date, e.g., 2008 - 2010, just add the first year followed by a dash. The current year will fill in after the dash.

I just used the link and although it works I was just curious as to where I add the year and the dash. When I put the html code in on my website without putting a year or anything it automatically puts the year after the "All Rights Reserved" however when I edit the html to have the beginning to current year it doesn't show neither. here is my website link www.makeupbyelleb.info let me know what I need to do different please

Hello Elle

Can you please let me know if this is still a problem? From what I can see - it appears you may have set this up successfully?

However, a slogan used on your site can be argued someone else owned it first. So for slogans and names, I would recommend getting it trade marked which can cost about $300 lol... what a suggestion!

It looks like you have the copyright symbol in the wrong place. Paste it after the first script line before the first year and you should be good to go.

The only problem I had was the fact that I had to delete most of the HTML and then type in manually the 2010-2011 which I believe that by deleting the first part of the code it will cause me to have to manually update the copyright year each year as oppose to it being able to do it automatically

here is what the HTML code looks like:

Makeup by Elle B. © 2010-2011 All Rights Reserved

when I had the previous code given by Margie above each time that I would type in the 2010- it would always appear as 2011-2010 and I even tried to reverse it by putting 2011-2010 and that didn't work I also tried 2010-2010 and came up with 2010-1969 it is all messy lol but I believe I am going to stick to the way I did it. And if I have to update it then so be it. I am always loading new content so it's not like it would be a problem to do it 1 a year ;) thanks for all your help everyone I appreciate it ubber much ;D

Elle, I see you aren't currently using the automatic date update script. Since it's not yet 2011, it looks odd (to me) to see next year shown.

The reason it didn't work with that script is because it is only 2010 now. Putting a "date - date" won't work unless the first one is before the current year.

You could add the script in January 2011 and add "2010 - " at that time. From then on it will automatically update each year.

Does that make sense?

I just decide to keep it at one year for now and then see if it changes in the coming year as oppose to having 2 years on there ;) thanks everyone for your help!
