Utilizing the Copyright Symbol ©

You can use the © Symbol as a way to show that you claim the copyright over the work of which you are the creator, however this is not necessary, nor does it affect the level or production that you have in each case.

Any creator/beneficiary claiming copyrights over his/hers work, whether it is a book, fairy tale, song, website, film etc., can use the © symbol, with the first publication of their work, accompanied by his/hers name and the year of first publication. In this way, he/she shows that he/she intends to legally claim his/hers copyrights if and when someone infringes them.
