A copyright notice is not legally required in the U.S, but it is the best way to put people on notice that you are the exclusive owner of all rights to your book. BookWrangler will create a properly formatted copyright notice page. This page and its content are the way your book is recognized by librarians, bibliographers, publishers, buyers and writers wanting to use quotations from your book. There are a few important elements of the copyright notice page, which include: the © symbol, the year of first publication of your book and the name of the copyright holder. The copyright notice page should also contain a reservation of rights where you specify which rights you own and which you allow, such as allowing fair use rights, but stating that all other uses require a license from the publisher.
