It’s January 1st, and that means…

It’s January 1st – Happy New Year – and that means that it’s time to update all those pesky copyright notices on the bottom of the pages of your Web site. If you’ve got a Unix system, you can at least find them quickly with a command like:


find . -type f -print | xargs grep '©'

At least, that’ll work if you’re using the proper character entity sequence of © rather than some special symbol that probably doesn’t render properly on your visitors screen.

  1. Ah, yes, but when you have about fifteen different domains, each with its own web design, and you have some legacy designs (read that as “not as well built”) it’s a little bit more work. 😉
