BTW this question also applies to the trademark and patent symbol.
Would it be appropriate to use it on these boards, when using a copyrighted term? Here’s the symbol: ©.
I actually think I may have done this, used ©, before (a very long time ago, FWIW). What is the ‘correct’ use of it? I know it’s not necessary. And for that matter is it wrong to use it, if your not the copyright holder?
Of course you all realize that use of any copyrighted material on the internet (and elsewhere for that matter) is governed by the Fair Use Doctrine. If you use it ‘within reason’, you have nothing to worry about. What that exactly means, I don’t know, and would require another thread (to say nothing of several volumes of law books I’m sure).
EDIT: BTW you can rest assured my actions on this message board certainly conforms to the Fair Use Doctrine, at least to the best of my knowledge .
