    Copyright statement

    Hi there,

    About to put up my first website, and was hoping someone could tell me, where I could get a copyright statement, where I could just cut and paste it and add it to my site.

    Really appreciate any help

    Thanks

    This is one I got from a generic provider of copyright statements (although I've lost the link now):

    Aside from consulting with an attorney to draft a customized copyright notice and terms of use section to suit your particular site's needs, I suggest you get your hands on a copy of The Internet Legal Guide by Dennis Powers, Esq.

    Are you talking about a seperate page, or just the little statement at the bottom of a page? For the bottom of a page something like "Copyright &copy;2006 <<your company>>. All content on <<simplified url (abuga.com)>> is copyright and can not be reproduced in any way, including republishing and redistributing. What the people above me said about lengthened statements is what I would go by.
