Copyright Notices and Your Photos

copyright dates for your photos

Including a copyright notice on your photos, website or blog is a common (and smart!) practice among photographers. But, have you ever wondered what year to use as your copyright date? Should you use the year the photo was taken or the current date?  Why do some people include a range of dates instead of just one year?

If these sound like questions you’ve asked yourself, take a look at this helpful article on the Photo Attorney website. It explains exactly what to include in your copyright notices. The Photo Attorney site is a great resource for photographers wanting to learn more about protecting their work. Also be sure and check out their article ‘5 Things You Can Do to Protect Your Images Online‘ for some great tips when sharing your content on the web.
