Free Copyright Notice

A copyright notice is principally intended to assist with assertions of copyright infringement. Historically, a copyright notice could be a prerequisite of copyright protection. This is no longer the case (at least in the most significant jurisdictions). Nonetheless, a notice will help in educating potential copyright infringers, and may make it harder to rely upon an innocent infringement defense.

The free copyright notice covers the following:

  • Ownership of copyright
  • Copyright license
  • Data mining
  • Permissions
  • Enforcement of copyright
  • Infringing material
  • This copyright notice
