I dunno, I'm not from the US, but I would have thought the copyright
date was useful when contention arises, e.g. to prove your content was
the original version.  So an older copyright date would seem
beneficial.  I'm not sure many sites apply their copyright
declarations accurately with respect to dates due to the fluid nature
of the content.  Is it necessary to include the date in the copyright
statement?  A lot of UK Government websites have a "Crown Copyright"
statement, with no date.
