In the United States, a copyright notice usually consists of these three elements::

1. the © symbol (in some cases (c) is substituted), the word "Copyright" or abbreviation "Copr.";

2. the first year of publication; and

3. the owner of the copyright, either by name, abbreviation, or other designation.
