You would use the date that is proceeded by the word "copyright" or the copyright symbol and followed by the name of a person or entity holding the copyright. If there should be more than one notice formatted in this way you would use the notice with the most recent date. The line you found with the name of the publisher and the date of publication is common in books but doesn't have much to do with the copyright. That notice only tells you the year the copy you have was printed. The copyright date could be the same year or years in the past and the copyright holder frequently is not the publisher.
I hope this explanation is clear enough.
