Copyright notice - What is the standard form of copyright notice?



A common form of copyright notice is the copyright symbol “©”, followed by the name of the copyright owner and the year of first publication. For example,

© Daffy Duck, 2007

In many publications, other words are added to the notice. For example: “Except as provided by the Copyright Act 1994, no part of this publication may be reproduced or stored in a retrieval system in any form or by any means without the prior written permission of the copyright owner”.

However, there is no standard form of copyright notice − the copyright owner can decide on the wording used.
