It is my understanding that "(c)" has no meaning in
law. The copyright symbol is ©. when that symbol is not available (for
whatever reason), use the word "copyright."

Excellent observation! Here's exactly what the U.S. Copyright Act says is acceptable:

"the symbol © (the letter C in a circle), or the word 'Copyright', or the abbreviation 'Copr.'..."

The use of (C) (the letter C in parentheses) has become quite common but is not officially recognized in the Copyright Act.
