Copywriting your website is as simple as adding a little notice to the bottom of your website. According to Love2Dev, “The copyright notice most of us put at the bottom of our pages visibly proclaims all the site or page’s material and contents cannot be used without permission of the owner. It does not matter if the person or organization copying the contents sees the notice or not. In 1989 a public notice requirement was eliminated.”

The simplest possible footer for copy + paste:

Obviously swap out your company name – but here’s a quick example similar to the one that we have on our website.

© Copyright 2021, Your Company Name.

Here’s another format – that I think looks nice!

© 2018 – 2021 Your Company Name | All Rights Reserved

Footer with dynamic year (only for WordPress php file):

This will show the current year if you add this to a PHP template for WordPress (normally your footer.php file.)

&copy; Copyright <?php echo date('Y'); ?>, Your Company Name - All Rights Reserved

Add a Copyright to Divi WordPress Theme

One way to add a Copyright to Divi is to use a dynamic year in your Divi Footer copyright section: Simply use a small Javascript code snippet. Divi makes that simple. Here’s how according to Tawfiq.com:

In your WordPress admin go to Divi->Theme Options.

Paste the this code under the “Integration” tab in the header code section:

<script>
// Add A Dynamic Year In Divi Footer Copyright
 var beg_year = 2021; // Year site went live
 var this_year = new Date(); // Get current date
 var copyright_text = ' Company Name | All Rights Reserved ';
 var developed_by = '| Made with <span id="icon-love" class="et-pb-icon et-waypoint et_pb_animation_top et-animated"></span> by <a href="https://yourdomain.com" target="_blank">Your Company Name</a>'; // Developer info
 
 this_year = this_year.getFullYear();
 if(this_year > beg_year) {
 var year = beg_year + ' - ' + this_year;
 } else {
 var year = this_year;
 }
 jQuery(function($){
 $('#footer-info').html('© ' + year + ' ' + copyright_text + ' ' + developed_by );
 });
</script>

Termsfeed suggest using copywrite notices for these 3 reasons:

  • A copyright notice can help deter infringement/plagiarism, and
  • You can use the notice to declare what rights you wish to maintain.
  • In the event that you need to bring legal action against someone for copying your work, having a copyright notice in place can be a very useful thing.
