It's January 5, 2008. FIVE days past New Years.
Being curious, I went out to see which of the three Web Giants – Yahoo!, Google or have updated their footnote to "'Copyright 2008". Can you guess who did?

Here are the amazing results.



and here comes LIVE.COM

Interesting enough, it seems that Google & Yahoo are keeping it alive, while, while is still out there in '07.

What has changed on the page since December 31, 2007? If it was originally published in 2007 are they allowed to claim a 2008 copyright date?

Most programming languages have someway to get the current year, which is why I always find it odd when websites don't have the correct year.

<<I don't think that it needs to change until new content appears. It's still copyrighted even thought it says 2006 instead of 2007 as the copyright exists from when it was first written.>>

From Tony Ruscoe last year (if you're too lazy to click Haochi's links :D)
