Years ago I used to write a newsletter, which I printed at home, photocopied at the 'mairie' (I lived in France at the time) and posted out to a few regular readers... this was before I had 'the internet'.
Some of the stuff I wrote back then I am now publishing in my hubpages.
(I shouldn't have a problem with duplicate flags, as only a few appeared on the web and they were on my old Geocities site, which no longer exists!)
My question is - when I note my copyright details, should I date it to when the article was first written? Or re-date it for now, especially if I update and 'tweak' it a little.
You do not need to date copyright, however if you do decide to do so, say copyright 'year' including continued amendments.
You may want to look at the credits given by a gentleman here on HP who has re-published many of his newspaper articles written over the years: William F. Torpey.

I was wondering how you guys are doing it.I understand that one can register with the actual copyright office for a small fee (naturally), but that seems a little extreme. I just want to protect myself and my work....

I have a suggestion. At the bottom of the article you can choose to add a copyright, which includes the date. I used to put my own in without the date, but you can't do that anymore. The reason I did it that way is because I think, when people see a date of several years ago on an article, they...

Just a reminder to update the copyright notice on your Hubs to the year 2012. If you don't have a notice on your Hubs, consider adding one. There have been many forum posts recently about plagiarism of Hubs. Although your work is protected without this notice, I feel it is...
