@Colin Goudie is right here.

I'd suggest browsing to Browse | Confluence Admin | Look & Feel | Custom HTML

In At the end of the HEAD add:

<script>
  AJS.toInit(function(){
    AJS.$('#poweredby li:not(:first)').hide();
  });
</script>

This would customisation would be retained on upgrade.

Also, read Editing the Footer

In your confluence installation directory you could modify your confluence/decorators/includes/footer-content.vm and remove it.

Or you could build a plugin (or add some custom Javascript to global html) to hide the #footer div with JQuery

Thanks, Colin! The Custom HTML works great! Dan

Oops, looks should I should have been thanking David! (I saw the Colin link at the top of David's answer.)

Anyway, I appreciate the quick reply from you both.
