I have been told to include not just the publication year, but a
range of years, spanning the time during which all the content
was written.

Take a look at Help|About in Word 97. You'll see the statement
Copyright (C) 1983-1997 Microsoft Corporation. This is to cover
any code it may contain from previous versions of Word.

Similarly, many of the documents I produce are built upon
previous documents, or include fragments of text written
previously. A document I write today may contain text written in
1997, so I would say Copyright (C) 1997-1999 MyCompany.
