Since my January 10th post of the same title was such a hit (at least according to my Web logs), I thought I'd revisit this subject. To summarize: on January 10th, 50% of the content management companies I track hadn't updated their copyright notices to say "2006," even though the ability to update content at a specific date and time is a common feature of such packages. As of early January, the guilty parties were: ATG, BEA, CrownPeak, Day Software, Ektron, Interwoven, iUpload, Mediasurface, Open Text, and Stellent.
Since we're almost entering the second quarter of the year, let's see how we're doing. The answer is better -- but four are still stuck in 2005.
The current laggards are highlighted in red (ATG, BEA, CrownPeak Technology, and Day Software); the companies who updated their copyright notices within the past three months have asterisks after their names.
- ATG (www.atg.com) -- 2005 on the Legal page

It will be interesting to see if the laggards make it to mid-year still claiming it's 2005.
