Copyright is to do with when things are written, not what the current date is, although it varies for different countries.

Actually you don't even need to date it for copyright to still be entirely valid :)

Im not large expert in copyright issues, but I know some basics....but isnt there the issue that copyrighted items maintain that status for set number of years?

Yep. Life + 70 years in the United States, UK, Germany, France, Netherlands, and much of the rest of Europe. Most countries have copyright durations set to life + 50 years or life + 70 years.

Well this thing is still being written - it is not yet complete!

So I think it needs an update to the date.

As has been said, it doesn't matter.

phpbb2 has 2001 - 2003 in its copyright -> I was told that these dates had to do with the subSilver template, and the year was removed from the software itself.

I however am not sure about this, don't know if another team member can confirm this?
