Re: Copyright puntuation
Help. Where I work, we have stirred up a tempest in a teapot by questioning how our current copyright notice is punctuated. Marketing, legal, product development, and business analysts/technical writers (and we don't all agree) are involved. We need a sane, authoritative opinion to settle the dust.There are two "authorities" for copyright notices in the United States: the Library of Congress and a copyright lawyer. The latter will give you more information on international copyright laws and how to protect your company. Copyrighting your material, however, is only part of the process. Enforcing a copyright is very difficult, especially on a global level.
