One might also want to Not delete the earliest Copyright date.
Numerous commercial firms lists several copyright years in same
file or product start up.
When I was editing some of my stuff recently, I decided to leave
first & last year in, dont know if thats correct though.
I suppose if one really wanted to know what's correct, one could search
& read Bern (Switzerland) International Copyright Convention.
