Copyright symbols


You can use the © symbol to indicate that you own the copyright in a work.

The usual use of this symbol is in the following manner:

© [your name] [year of creation]

For example:

© John Smith 2014

By using the © symbol you put potential infringers on notice of your copyright.  In any case, whether you attach the symbol to your work or not does not affect the level of protection you have in Hong Kong.
