I guess a range is suitable for web pages and programs, that get updated
more often than other things.

Is it possible to claim copyright forever on server-generated pages?
If it keeps changing every time you fetch it (even if it eventually
happens to change to something it has served before), could you claim
that every page is a new derived work that is protected?

The fact that an automated script is the "author" should not matter,
since there seems to be copyright on the output from compilers.
