Date on Copyright

    Hi, I just started a new hub and noticed that the copyright symbol shows the date 1969.
    Is this something I have done or does the date correct itself when the hub is published.

    Thanks for your help.

    Kind regards

    Colleen

      This has recently been mentioned here: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/120600#post2556573 Just scroll up a little to see the first mention of the issue.

    Where did you get the copyright symbol from, Colleen? By the way, welcome to HP. :-)

      @ Jayne - This is an "Oops" that HP is working on right now.  Some of us start hubs just to write down our ideas and paste in research so that we can come back to it later .... sometimes, that's years later.  Some Hubbers were noticing that the auto copyright is for the date we started the hub and not the date we publish it. In a different forum thread (http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/120600), they asked HP to change that and HP tried to do that and everyone's seems to read 1969.  Sooooo, yeah. Even though it's marked "FIXED", it isn't ....  HP should have that resolved soon :-)

      @ The Examiner-1 - When you're editing your hubs, go to the right-handed editing tool bars.  Under "Display Options" you'll see "Copyright" with a drop-down menu.

        I just thought I'd direct Colleen to that thread so she knows she's not alone.

          Sorry Jayne!!!  My browser is glitching like crazy, so I didn't realize you'd sent her to the same thread and that I'd missed putting her name in there too!

            Absolutely no problem. Just wanted to let you know what my motive was.

        Rosa,
        I know that. Even when I click on "no notice" the 1969 shows up, so I just open another text capsule and write a copyright notice with the my name and the current year.

          Okay!  You want the actual symbol, then, not the location of HB notice option!  Got it! LOL  That is available in the text editing tool bar.  The horseshoe shaped icon is for special characters and the copyright symbol is in the top row.

          That 1969 is crazy!  I might have to go back to inserting my own notice for the hubs with that date, too!

      Hi Colleen, this happened to me yesterday and I tried back later on to see if when I tried to add the copyright notice, the "1969" disappeared.  It had.  As for correcting itself when you go to publish it, I don't know.

        I have not noticed the date stamp on my (c) on my article, I do put the date and copywrite in my poems.
        All you wonderful authors know so much more than I do.  Thank you for asking questions I need to.

      Matthew has responded on the other post. 1969 is the default date for unpublished hubs. It stays that date until it is published.
