  • Off topic - copyright notices.

    Very slightly off-topic here but I normally get good results here….so please excuse me.

    I’m looking for a copyright notice for the start of a DVD project and wondered if anyone had any pointers.

    My previous projects have had copyright notices supplied by clients and are of a licensing nature.

    I’m looking for one for my own filmed work?

    Any advice will be gratefully received as I’m coming up dry searching the net.

    Thanks

        Don't forget to put the © symbol (press Alt and 0169), followed with the
        year created and name of creator in that order. That's for the USA.

        Some countries such as UCC members don't recognize the word "copyright" , so just easier to always use © (edit) And the UCC countries want the ©, creators name, year created, in that order.

          Can we use this copyright message on wedding dvds we produce for our customers to stop them making cheap copies?

          We are trying to stop customers from making their own copies. Not sure where the law here in the UK stands on this.

            You can use the copyright notice, but I wouldn't really expect it to prevent your customers from making their own copies. It should stop them from being able to get it copied by a commercial copying service.

                Perhaps, but how would you even know if someone is making copies? I think the best solution is to be sure that you are well paid up front.
