Well,

Some good example:
(ALTLinux is on of the leading local russian distributions):

in English: ftp://ftp.altlinux.ru/pub/distributions/ALTLinux/4.0/Server/license.txt in Russian: ftp://ftp.altlinux.ru/pub/distributions/ALTLinux/4.0/Server/license.txt.ru

We have something similar at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Legal/Licenses/EULA
Currently it finishes with:
Copyright (C) 2003, 2004, 2005 Fedora Project.  All rights reserved.
...

Does this mean changes made in 2006/7 won't be covered ?
Do we need to include any year in which changes/work has been performed {or perhaps a range}.

I am not sure whether the copyright notice is intended to protect the EULA, or the fedora distribution itself ;)

From:
http://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ1.html#noc

It suggests only the first year of publishing should be included. But it isn't clear whether FC6 is a different work to FC7, and hence should only show it's year of publishing ? In my mind, FC7 is not a "re-print" of FC6 with some typos fixed - it is more a new work. What would rh legal say about this ?
