The letter "c" inside of a circle – the copyright symbol on your keyboard – is recognized around the world as the symbol denoting a work's copyright, the Copyright Laws website says. The copyright specifies the owner of the rights to the work. The copyright symbol is usually followed by the name of the copyright holder and the year of the material's publication or first use.
