Duration is from the death of the author.  The year only matters if it 
is a corporate copyright.  In such cases, the duration would be from 
original publication of the material.  Copyrightable changes would date 
from their creation.  Thus a copyright stating 2000-2002 would mean that 
some material is copyright 2000 some is copyright 2002 (good luck 
figuring out which is which, though).
