Now is the Time to Update Your Copyright on Your Website

Keeping Up with IAMTEEJAY

It's a brand New Year.  Time to set those New Year's resolutions, organize your closet, and probably head to the gym.  While you are re-setting your life you should add one more item to your To Do List: Update the copyright year on your website. Yes, that little footnote on your website pages. This symbol ©. The one that protects all the content, logos, images, and everything else that you have on your site.  

You might be thinking, why?  Does anyone even notice it?  First and foremost, you should know that a current copyright protects your ownership of the site content which cannot be reused without the owner's permission. This simple change can make a big difference if you come across an incident of copyright infringement.  And yes, people do notice.  When your customer visits your site and sees an old copyright date, a little part of their trust and confidence in you diminishes. Conversely, seeing a current date instills confidence and let's your clients know you are taking care of things, that you pay attention to detail and will be on top of any purchase, sale or project.  An accurate copyright date also avoids customer confusion.  An old copyright date may indicate that the content of your site is irrelevant even when you updated it this morning. Make sure your customers know you are active and open for business!

It's easy to overlook the footnote with your copyright when you are making larger content changes.  But if the content of your website is valuable to you, financially or otherwise,  protect it by updating the year of your copyright on your website.

Let IAMTEEJAY help you!  We can make that update now for 2017 and we can make that update again year after year so you never have to worry about it. Contact me!
