Does anyone know how to add the copyright symbol on the 1D4 and/or 1Dx copyright screen. It looks like all I can do is put (c) or {c} or some variation of that. Can't understand why that symbol isn't preloaded?

ALT + 0169

Hold ALT key down, and then on the number pad touch 0169

On a Mac that would be Option-G.

I can't help with entering it on the camera (but I noticed the Nikons are the same: maybe it's something to do with extended ASCII codes? I'm talking out of my hat here).

However, you don't strictly need the copyright symbol in a copyright notice. In fact, you don't need the notice, since copyright exists in the work automatically. But to make it clear to potential thieves that copyright exists, use the word Copyright in addition to your (c). Something like this would work: Copyright (c) 2012 Eye Laser.

Contrary to popular belief, the law isn't usually fussy about the wording of things, as long as it's precise and impossible to misconstrue.

Eric : I can't find any proof while 'googling' but I remember reading that, of late, the law is to use the full word Copyright instead of (Alt+0169)

You can't find proof because, of late, the law is that you do not need to use the full word or the symbol.

I found this in less than a minute, googling: http://law.freeadvice.com/intellectual_property/copyright_law/copyright_mark_protection.htm

30 seconds later: http://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ03.pdf Read the first sentence of that official US Copyright Office publication.

It's been this way since 1989 which is 23 years ago.

Thanks everyone. I will try the software but I guess it really isnt that important. I can affix a copyright symbol using photoshop if and when I want to. I think they are pretty distracting at any rate.

You don't have to put one on the picture with PS, you can put one in the EXIF metadata, in the Copyright Status information. See File --> File Info.

You can even have a template with your basic info to fill in the three fields: Copyright Status, Copyright Notice, and Copyright URL. It can fill in a couple of other fields too: Author, Author Title.
