Does anyone else have this?

I guess Virgin Media just could not be bothered to update it to 2020. I raised it with them before and they didn't really comment on it much. I can't believe they've not even noticed it.

Is it affecting your Broadband, TV, Telephone or Mobile services ?

No ?

I didn't think so, just another waste of time post.

Re: Does anyone else have this?

Hi

Two thoughts.......

 

They are obviously very busy right now and it's on the TO-DO list

OR

VM are pretty slapdash / not too particular about what image they present.

do you undertsand what the date actually refers to? clearly not.

"Following the copyright symbol is the date. You should insert the year in which your work was created"

Re: Does anyone else have this?

That would mean anything created post 2014 on the website would not be covered by the copyright notice and thus would not preclude a defence of unintentional infringement; the latter is likely why companies maintain copyright notices that reflect the current year:  see ARM Holdings, Adobe, Apple, IBM, Microsoft, Liberty Global (Virgin Media's parent company), …

Re: Does anyone else have this?

the 2014 date only appears on the forum/community pages though, not the main virgin website.
so the 2014 copyright date only applies to the community.

Re: Does anyone else have this?

copyright is automatic. The creator of any work is automatically granted copyright to that work. No notice or regiserstration is needed.




That © Sign
Another misconception is that you have to put the copyright symbol on something, or else it isn’t copyrighted. This used to be true, but is not the case any longer.

In a related myth, some people think that you can’t use the copyright symbol unless you have registered the copyright. Also untrue.

The copyright symbol carries no legal weight and has no magical effect on the status of your copyright. Forgetting to use it does not cause you to lose your rights related to something you created.

The purpose of the copyright symbol and dated copyright notice is to inform people that a piece of art is copyrighted, who owns that copyright, and under what terms is the present copy being made available.

Copyright notices are not required for any reason, but they are certainly useful and ought to be included.

By the way, the best way to display the circle-C copyright symbol is to type © into your HTML.

This should be followed by the year of creation and the name of the current copyright holder (usually the creator). If you want to add additional notices (such as “All rights reserved” or “Creative Commons release,”) do so after the name.
