So: were you actively going for the Christopher Lee look in frames 3 & 4?Bored... ahem. Curious readers want to know.
I loved seeing this post on the day I turned in my final project for my copyright class!
Copyright applies from the date a work is created in a fixed/tangible form. So the copyright date should be the date on which the piece is created, not when it goes online. If you fiddled with it, as some suggest, well, I'm not sure anyone would care, but it would not be the correct copyright date. Though, they threw out the requirement of a copyright notice on books in the 1980s -- not sure if that applies to artwork.
And, one of the comments was close but not quite -- copyright applies for life + 70 years (thanks in part to Disney, who paid off politicians to keep Mickey out of the public domain).

How and where to place the copyright symbol and copyright notice on your workWhen placed in or on your work, the copyright symbol—©—denotes that you hold the copyright to that work. You don't need to wait until you've filed your copyright application to place the copyright symbol on your work.
SO i guess you can put that damn thing anywhere anytime you want and fill out the paperwork when you get around to it ...
