Copyright Notice Questions

What is a copyright notice?

What is a copyright notice? A copyright notice is also an icon or saying, notifies users of the fundamental assert to copyright ownership in a published work. From country to country copyright law is different. For a piece of work to be protected in about twenty countries the copyright notice is mandatory. Read below to find more information about copyright notice, and how to write a copyright notice by the Experts.

What is a proper copyright notice?

There are quite a few types of suitable copyright notices for works. The most common used type is: the sign "©", year of the initial publication of the work, given name of the copyright owner. For instance: © 2010 HOLLAND & BONZAGNI, P.C. In foreign countries, the notice contains an additional line: "All Rights Reserved."

Does someone need to place a copyright notice on a photograph that the party is allowing to be used in a magazine?

In present copyright laws, there is no obligation that a copyright notice be put on a copyrighted work. If the individual wants a notice, accompany the photograph for appreciation reasons, which is a contract involving the individual and the magazine.

When someone puts their copyright notice on a story that they have written, what date do they use the first time they wrote it down?

The copyright notice is not as significant as someone might think. When including a copyright notice the date the work was originally created should be the date included in the notice. Placing a copyright notice is a good practice, though no longer a legal requirement. If a revision is made or a derivative work that had been changed enough to stand on its own merit, one would also want to put a new date as opposed to the date of the underlying work.

How long is a copyright legal? Is there a certain term limit for a copyright?

The major problem that copyright law is worried with is when the job was made and when it was published. However, yes, there is constantly a period boundary for a copyright. If it was published with a copyright notice, it will be 95 years from the date of publication.

What would be the best way to give an editor credit for their help, they would like to have “writing with” on the cover but they are an editor?

In most situations, the risk of granting recognition to the editor with something that states "writing with" is that the editor might later try to declare authorship and therefore copyright rights. Therefore, to keep away from this the individual needs to simply grant the editor recognition as editor. In addition, the individual needs to have the editor waive all copyright claims to your book. As well, the individual needs to record the copyright with the U.S. Copyright Office in the individuals personal name only, and supply a copyright notice in the book putting the individual’s personal name only.

Copyright notice can lead to many questions. Experts frequently answer questions on a wide range of topics like how to write a copyright notice, proper copyright notice, copyright warning notice and more. Whether someone is unsure of the provision of law, and needs a second opinion or a clarification, all someone needs to do is ask an Expert for quick and affordable answers.

    If I bought a photo in 1979 that was taken in 1979, from a newspaper photographer (photo did not appear in the paper); is the photo considered published or unpublished, and if I wanted to reprint it do I need permission in either case above. If I do reprint it and I don't need permission, do I still give credit to the photographer and/or the newspaper? I don't believe any other prints of the photo were made except the one I bought. Is this one and only print sold considered published or unpublished? There was no copyright notice on the photo.
    I also would like to reprint a 1971 football 5th grade team photo. It does not have any copyright notice either on the photo or the matting. However I do have other team football photos and on the matting it states who the photographer was for that year.
    Thanks,
    Jerry
  • I saw a notebook at a conference. It was comprised of many

    I saw a notebook at a conference. It was comprised of many sections that were all separated on the table into individual notebooks. The original notebook leaned against the wall. I had absolutely no desire for the complete book at $500 , so I asked if I could purchase two of the sections. I was rudely dismissed
    The following week, I posted on our managers open forum a request to share the cost of the book with anyone who may have the full version. I specified which sections I wanted.
    Within a day, the arrogant president of the compny that wrote the book, posted a Nast note on the open forum, accusing me of a crime relative to his copyrighted notebook.
    My question
    Did I inadvertantly infringe on his copyright? All I asked was to share the cost of the book with someone
  • Can you use the likeness of another artist's artwork (an etching

    Can you use the likeness of another artist's artwork (an etching print) in your own artwork as part of a still-life (i.e. the print is represented as it is, 'his' print complete with signature)? The etching print was created in 1926 and the artist died in 1959. The artwork isn't being copied per se, the actual print is being represented for what it is - a print from that artist. I see many artists using other artists' work in their paintings (i.e. William Acheff still lifes, Jenness Cortez still lifes etc.) but a lot of the art they use in their still lifes are from artists who died longer ago, usually, but not always. So, I would like to know.
