Copyright Symbol Resources

Copyright Fonts? No new copyright font is required.

Some people do not realise that with Copyright Symbol (the circle c), you do not need a specific copyright symbol font to make the circle with a c in it. It is different however, for the Phonograph Copyright Symbol (the circle-P symbol). The first part of this copyrite webpage focuses purely on the how to display the © symbol. There is more information on the circle-p symbol further below.

Typing the Copyright Symbol

You can type the copyright symbol yourself quite easily as is laid out below.  We have made it easy for just the simple requirements on how to insert copyright symbol.   If you don’t want to make your own copyright symbol, feel free to use any of the copyright symbol images that we have made for you below.  Either way, you should find something you want, if you are trying to put a copyright C on your photoshop image, your document, in your code, on your website etc.. etc..

 

 

How to make a copyright symbol from the keyboard for text documents:

How to make a Copyright C Symbol on a PC Keyboard  (©):

This should work for all PC keyboards when you need to type a copyright symbol. It should work on WYSIWYG html programs when you insert copyright symbols and of course any word processor where you need to make a copyright symbol with your keyboard from standard fonts installed.

 

Hold down Ctrl and Alt at the same time and press C                Ctrl+Alt+C

 

Hold down Alt and type 0169 on the number pad (right hand side of your keyboard)   Alt+0169

 

How to make a Copyright C Symbol on a Mac  (©):

This should work for all Mac keyboards when you need to type a copyright symbol.

 

Hold down Option at the same time and press 'g'to get the copyright symbol.                Option+g

 

 

HTML Copyright Symbol (inserting the Copyright Symbol in HTML pages)

HTML supports special symbols that are not on your keyboard.

The special symbol code for the copyright symbol © on HTML is &copy.  

The code is defined by starting with a & (ampersand) and finishing with a ; (semicolon).

 

An example code using the special symbol name would be as follows.

 

<p> &copy; 2004 John Doe </p>

 

However, to ensure that there are no mishaps and you ALWAYS get the proper read from HTML documents, you should try to always use the  number code instead of the symbol code.   The number is &#169;

 

An example code using the special symbol number would be as follows.

 

<p> &#169; 2004 John Doe </p>

Unicode Copyright Symbol - Programmers, please NOTE:

Unicode is required by modern standards such as Java, XML, ECMAScript / JavaScript, CORBA, WML, LDAP etc.

Pretty much all of the questions about Copyright Symbols for standards that use Unicode will require the &#169 input. however, this may differ such as for XSL as listed below. We have tried to collate what we can for you - if you can't work out the answer from here...keep on searching – and please write to us with any information that you think would be useful on this site.

 

Java Script / JSP Copyright Symbol

In Java use the unicode   &#169; or  &#xA9; to get the copyright symbol.  One common mistake is typing the © into the code, which will not work.

 

XML Copyright Symbol

In XML use the unicode   &#169; or  &#xA9; to get the copyright symbol.

 

XSL Copyright Symbol

If you were to use the '&copy' entity with XSL, you may well come across the complaint of "Reference to undefined entity 'copy'."

In XSL always use &#xA9;

 

Texinfo Copyright Symbol:

In Texinfo, the copyright symbol needs an @-command. The command is followed by a pair of braces, `{}', without any space between the name of the command and the braces.

 `@copyright{}'

This will generate `(C)' in Info, and the © in a printed manual.

 

LaTex Copyright Symbol:

In LaTex, for the copyright symbol use the command       \copyright    (slash copyright)

How to make a Phonograph “Circle P” Symbol on a PC   (P):

 

The P symbol is for phonograph recordings (See www.copyrightauthority.com for more information)

 

As you can see from our terrible copyright circle P symbol example above…. It’s not possible to type in a copyright (P) like it is for the C symbol.  In no way, whatsoever.  You can only type a Phonograph Symbol on your keyboard if you have downloaded tailored fonts that allow you to type the circle P symbol.  

 

HOWEVER…. That is why, we have been so kind to make the copyright symbols below for you to use free of charge, including the circle P copyright image.
