How to Use Copyright Symbols

Last week we covered trademarks and service marks; this week we are focused on © the copyright symbol. What does it mean and when can I use it? 

Today we’re breaking down the facts about the copyright symbol. Whether you have a registered copyright or not, it’s important to understand this symbol so that you can use it correctly within your business.  

In this episode, we’ll cover: 

  • The meanings behind the copyright symbol
  • When you can use this symbol (immediately, in many cases!) 
  • When the federal copyright protection is created for your work
