How did you manage to get a copyright of 2005 for your book?

I don't know why and how publishers do this, but it is a standard practice. It used to be that books that came out in December could register for a copyright in the following year. Now apparently that has crept up to September. It sounds silly to me, but then, so does "Java 2 Standard Edition 5.0" :-)
