I think that the value of the copyright date for catalogue users is
increasing, given the plethora of digital reissues which sometimes have
a new publication date decades after the original issue.  Helps to
indicate whether there are important differences in the new issue,
particularly in academic publishing. (Some publishers create a new
copyright just for a change of cover, but that is less common in
academic stuff).

Best wishes,
Bernadette

Just to reply to a couple of your questions in the first instance:

As I just said in my previous email, I think we see providing extra
access points and transcribing all authors as a positive thing
(particularly to those authors who weren't named first in a work with 4
or more authors!) though I do have some concerns about the extra
authority work involved.

You are right that copyright date is not *required* unless there is a
date of publication. However, people are free to include it if they want
to as it is a separate element in its own right. There was some
discussion of this yesterday too, since during the US NAtional Test,
Library of Congress was saying to include copyright date no matter what,
so people have become accustomed to seeing that in RDA records. It's now
not required unless the date of publication & manufacture are missing,
but I think some people are still choosing to add it anyway (which is
fine).
