Copyright Notices

By law, material does not have to contain a copyright notice or be.  From a practical point of view, it does help in building a case that a person has willingly disregarded an owner's copyrights.  A copyright notice has three parts:

  1. Copyright, Copr., or ©

  2. The year first published

  3. Name of copyright holder

An example of a complete copyright notice might be:  2003 ©BreitLinks, Inc.

Work does not need this notice, however, to be protected.
