I have just noticed that the main SeaLion Press pages are

Perhaps someone preemptively thought 2020 should be forgotten.

A bit late to fix now but you have 10 days to work out how to change it for 2021

IANAL but I note that the GPL computer program license which has been designed by US lawyers does change - or add to the copyright years in every file e.g.
;; Copyright (C) 1985-1986, 1999-2020 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
Many web sites do update the year annually. e.g. the Guardian all pages are (c)2020 even if written years ago.

Even then the page I first spotted it on was new releases https://www.sealionpress.co.uk/post/new-releases-five-new-books-available (and actually any recent post) which was written in 2020
