The symbol which is used to denote copyright of a particular product or brand is called the copyright symbol.
The copyright symbol is a symbol which is denoted by a small circle enclosing an alphabet "C", with any of the brand name or products. Hoe to copyright A name The application of this symbol was been described the copyright law stated at the United States of America, and this was also internationally accepted by universal copyright convention. The letter C which is included with the copyright symbol denotes the abbreviation copyright. A copyright notice was published at United States. the notice includes the following:
- The copyright symbol or just the abbreviation "copr.", also the word "copyright"
- The year at which the copyrighted work has first published.
- An identification which gives the specification about the copyright's owner either by abbreviation, any designation on which it is been generally known among the public or just by their name.
In case to receive a copyright protection at United States a notice is required. But this is not the case in countries which follows the Berne convention. The copyright symbol was been unavailable with typewriters and other computer systems based on ASCII for long days. to overcome this disadvantage a symbol which is in approximation with the copyright symbol was been introduced. The symbol used as an alternative to the copyright symbol is (C). This character can be mapped at unicode and hence made as a copyrighted sign. This character might be entered by employing the Alt codes, which is done by typing the numbers called 0169 by using the numeric pad on holding Alt key. On macintosh system, the symbols might be entered by pressing G. The unicode also includes a Latin capital letter enclosed withina small circle as the copyright symbol. this latin capital C can be used as a copyright symbol instead of the original copyright symbol in cases where the original symbol is not been available for use. for example: the korean code pages uses this type of the copyright symbol of a latin capital C enclosed in a small circle.
The copyright symbol symbol used for sound recording purpose is the capital P enclosed within a small circle. this symbol is been used to indicate that the particular sound performance has been copyrighted, and hence that is not subjected to any unauthorised access to it. Signature There is another symbol in use is the copyleft symbol. This symbol is designated by backwards C enclosed ina circle, this symbol will resemble the mirrored image of the original copyright symbol which is a capital C enclosed within a small circle. This copyleft symbol is also not available with the ASCII based and ither unicode systems hence the copyleft symbol is written as a reversed C enclosed within a paranthesis.
Other symbol used for denoting the registered trademark is called registered trademark symbol. This symbol is a capital R enclosed within a smalll circle. This symbol is been used at certain jurisdictions in order to get a designation for a trademark which has been registered with a record for further retrieval at united states of america.
