http://www.gnu.org/prep/maintain/maintain.html#Copyright-Notices

	Don't delete old year numbers, though; they are significant since they indicate
	when older versions might theoretically go into the public domain, if the movie
	companies don't continue buying laws to further extend copyright. If you copy a
	file into the package from some other program, keep the copyright years that
	come with the file.

I wonder what their rule is when transfering copyright older than the legal
entity.
