How To Edit or Remove Blogger Attribution

All new Blogger templates have an attribution at the bottom of the page like the one below:

You can edit it by going to the bottom of LAYOUT and click EDIT on the ATTRIBUTION gadget:

<b:widget id='Attribution1' locked='true' title='' type='Attribution'/>

Change locked='true' to locked='false' and the attribution will be removable.

The whole code is shown below:
<!-- outside of the include in order to lock Attribution widget -->
<b:section class='foot' id='footer-3' showaddelement='no'>
<b:widget id='Attribution1' locked='true' title='' type='Attribution'/>

<!-- outside of the include in order to lock Attribution widget -->
<b:section class='foot' id='footer-3' showaddelement='yes'>
<b:widget id='Attribution1' locked='false' title='' type='Attribution'/>
</b:section>

To remove it, just go to LAYOUT and look for the Attribution gadget at the bottom of the LAYOUT. Click EDIT, the REMOVE and the attribution will be gone.

Also, if you want to be able to

If you want something else there, you can also replace it with another gadget, eg a Text or HTML gadget and write whatever you want, the most likely replacement will be a HTML gadget with the copyright statement by typing the code Copyright
