This question already has an answer here:
I start every
.java file in my project with a license (BSD, in my case). And its first line says:
/** * Copyright (c) 2011-2014, Firstname Lastname * * Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without * modification, are permitted provided that the following conditions etc.
The question is, why do I need to show years there? I see many other projects are doing the same. What will I lose by just saying
Copyright (c) Firstname Lastname, without that time interval.
