(Publication is defined in the U.S. Copyright Act as the distribution or offer of distribution of a work to the public by sale or other transfer of ownership or by rental, lease, or lending.) Since some keyboards (or fonts you have on hand) cannot reproduce the © symbol, the symbol (c) may be used instead, although the latter will not always be accepted as a substitute for the former. Use of the symbol "©" in combination with certain other requirements affords copyright protection in some foreign countries. To ensure the enforceability of the copyright in the United States as against claims of innocent infringement, "Copyright" should always appear in the notice.All software distributed to others, whether it is distributed as "limited freeware" via computer networks or through the OTL or other Campus software distribution program should contain the copyright and disclaimer statement to protect the University of California and individual authors from any liability which might result, however remote, from the use of research software.

  • A legal "disclaimer" to the unmodified use of the UC Berkeley Copyright Notice and Disclaimer: The above copyright and disclaimer language assumes the most likely application of the UC Copyright Policy, which is that the Regents are the sole owners of the software. Your particular software ownership situation may differ. You may own, or there may be joint ownership of, the software. Please contact the Office of Technology Licensing to discuss these issues, if you have any question concerning ownership.
