Literary and Artistic Works
Create the image of a letter "C" inside a circle by whatever means is appropriate for the media in which you are working. For writings, type this on your typewriter or word processor; for paintings or sculptures, paint or engrave the image in an appropriate location on the painting or sculpture.
Add the year in which the work was first published, created or released, in Arabic numerals, such as "2007" or "2011."
Add the full name of the individual who owns the copyright next to the year. Check to ensure that this is stated exactly the same as the name on the copyright registration at the U.S. Copyright Office, if the copyright for the work has been registered.
Place the copyright notice statement for a musical or theatrical performance on the phonorecord -- audiocassette, compact disc -- of that performance. On the label for the phonorecord or tangible recording of the performance, place the letter P inside a circle.
Place the year of performance adjacent to the encircled letter P.
State the full name of the person who holds the copyright for the performance adjacent to the year of performance. Check to ensure that this has been expressed exactly the same as the name of the copyright owner on the U.S. Copyright Office registration, if any.
