What is a copyright notice?

A copyright notice typically includes the copyright symbol, as well as the name of the copyright owner and the year of the publication of the work. Please contact us if you require assistance with the preparation of a copyright notice for use on your material. It is not necessary to mark your work in Canada with a copyright notice of any kind in order to maintain or establish a claim to ownership of the copyright in that work.  However in some countries such as the United States it is necessary to put a copyright notice in place in the work.
