Lightroom Classic 7.3: Custom Splash Screen still shows 2007-2014 Adobe Copyright

This is a small bug, but one that has persisted for the last several minor and major releases of Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC.
Lightroom offers users the ability to have a custom splash screen appear instead of the default one built in to the program. That function works just fine, but the text that is displayed is woefully outdated. (See example image attached to this post.)

The Adobe copyright information displayed on the bottom of this custom splash screen hasn't been updated in four years.

It still reads: "Lightroom © Copyright 2007-2014 Adobe Systems Incorporated" 

Just thought you might want to have the programming team update that text string for the next release so that the Copyright is accurately displayed when the custom splash screen option has been enabled.

Maybe the copyright on Lightroom has expired! :)

Still there in 7.4 update. I know this is low hanging fruit, but c'mon...how hard is it to change a single text string in the code?

Bug is still there as of version 9.0

Copyright is now 5 years out of date on the custom splash screen.

How hard can it be for the program team to update one little text string?!?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom Classic 9.0: Custom Splash Screen still shows 2014 Adobe Copyright.

I had hoped that the recent release of Lightroom 9.0 might correct this, but the bug is still there!

This is a small bug, I admit, but one that has persisted for the last several
minor and major releases of Lightroom CC and Lightroom Classic CC.

Lightroom
offers users the ability to have a custom splash screen appear instead
of the default one built in to the program. That function works just
fine, but the text that is displayed is woefully outdated.

The Adobe copyright information displayed on the bottom of this custom splash screen hasn't been updated in five years.

It still reads: "Lightroom © Copyright 2007-2014 Adobe Systems Incorporated"
