Correct, unless the content might be third party but then the author should request a specific copyright flag..........

and  even if using javascript, one can still just display the relevant year(s), and of course the headers can have more exact

I use a SSI with env variable, so that there is only one file to maintain, similarly the header reflects the content creation
