When using material from someone else, it is very important that you honor the author's request as to how they want credit shown, including how they want their copyrights displayed.
- Copyright (word) + Date:
Example: Copyright 2008
- Copyright Symbol + The Date or Year Something Was Created:
Example: © March 2008 or ©2008
- Copyright Symbol With Word:
Example: © Copyright 2008
- Symbol Alone (when showing reference to something specific)
Example: How To Copyright Your Publications© written by Anita Newborn.
Sometimes, authors also use the words “All Rights Reserved,” or “All Intellectual Rights Reserved.” Neither is really necessary as a copyright already indicates that your rights are protected.
