How do I remove the Joomla copyright?

Joomla installs a footer banner when you install the sample content during installation.  This information is displayed in a module in the 'footer' position and should not be confused with the Joomlashack branding, which is located at the bottom of a template:

If you wish to remove the Joomla copyright in the footer log in to your Joomla Admin and go to Extensions -> Module Manager and unpublish the module in the 'footer' position named:  Footer

If you wish to remove the Joomlashack branding, you may do so with the purchase of a Rebranding License, either at the time of template purchase or any time after in our Licensing Center

    Purchasing rebranding, only comes with 1.0 and 1.5 Template Rebranding folders and instructions to replace the template.css.php for those versions.  No instructions are provided for 1.6.

    Can you clarify the suggestion below:   not sure what is meant by "unpublish the module in the footer position named : banners"

    Didn't understand this TJBaker response to the question about removing the Joomla phrase that appears when you use the footer.  The instructions don't seem to pan out.

    Last year I changed the en-GB/en-GB.mod_footer file from Joomla to my url.  Everything worked fine however I just noticed that the date did not change to 2012 at the beginning of this year.  Here is a paste of my changes:

    I want to buy a copyright removal license in order for me to remove the JS branding at my JS Phenom footer but did not find the link! At the License Center, it was only template info I got. I have bought this template for 11 months now. Can I remove it without purchasing the license? Where can I find the link to purchase the license? Thanks.
