You’ll want to declare to readers that you are the owner of the copyright — this is the job of the copyright notice. It consists of four components:

  • “Copyright”: Since the symbol isn’t recognized in some countries, it’s strongly recommended to reiterate it as its own word so that there’s no confusion.
  • ©: The near-universal symbol for copyright.
  • Copyright owner’s name: Assumedly, this will be your name, though it’s perfectly okay to use a pen name or pseudonym.
  • Year of publication: Take note that this is the year you publish the work (not the year that you first created it).

Together, it will give you this copyright statement. Any configuration will do the trick:

Copyright © Anthony Hall, 2014

Believe it or not, that’s all you need to tell the world that you own the copyright to your work.

Now we need to inform people about your rights, which takes us to the next step: the reservation of rights.

All Rights Reserved

The page will include a copyright statement that asks the reader to respect the writer’s rights. To do this, you simply need to write one of the two variations:

All rights reserved.
The moral rights of the author have been asserted.

So what exactly do these deceptively short sentences mean? All rights reserved indicates that the copyright owner reserves all the formal rights that copyright protection grants. This includes the right to publish the work, distribute the work, and make derivative works out of it.

The moral rights of the author have been asserted refers specifically to authors’ moral rights (separate from their economic rights). This way, the author declares the right to be attributed as the author of the work. You’ll see this sentence most often in books that are published outside the United States since the U.S. doesn’t recognize the distinction of moral rights.

These days, this copyright statement is just a formality. But if you’d prefer to be a bit more explicit, this is another popular way to phrase it:

All rights reserved. No part of this book may be reproduced in any form on by an electronic or mechanical means, including information storage and retrieval systems, without permission in writing from the publisher, except by a reviewer who may quote brief passages in a review.



Ta-da! In a few strokes of a pen, you’ve successfully declared your copyright and your rights. That’s all that you really need. If you’re content with this amount of information, take our basic template and run with it.

However, if you want to include other bells and whistles (such as a disclaimer, credits, or ISBN), that’s what the ‘extended’ version is for. Let’s see what that entails.


Disclaimer

In a society where suing is commonplace, it’s really no wonder that disclaimers are popular among authors. Don’t sweat, though! Before you begin envisioning nerve-wracking trips to the courtroom, the good news is that a few copyright statements can cover your bases. Here are some popular examples of disclaimers
