Does anyone know how to create that simple little circle with a C in the middle. This is better known to most as the copyright symbol. I wanted to place them at the end of most of my hubs, indicating that the hubs I produce are my own. I thought that you either copied and pasted this C symbol at the end of your articles, or use a key on the keyboard to create it? Some clarification with this would be greatly appreciated, on creating the copyright. Thanks for your feedback.
Sometimes typing (c) will create it. Certainly, just typing (C) is sufficient if you really wanted it there. You can put it on your hubs, but it's already assumed that the content is your original content, otherwise you would not (should not) be publishing it here. It's not going to slow down the thieves either.

However you're on the internet. If you really want to guarantee something will never be stolen, you shouldn't put it online. There are automated robots called scrapers who'll take content off any sites to put on spam sites. And lots of people who simply ignore copyright or don't realize that all internet content is copyright.
Hi JL. In the text capsule where you paste your text or write your text, there is a 'symbol' symbol. It looks like the alpha/omega symbol or a fancy upside down horseshoe. Click it to find the symbol you want. Voila!
I simply did a copy/paste of the one at the bottom of this page.
I'll see if I can find a larger one.
Thank you to all of the fellow hubbers who have helped me out with the copyright symbol issue. Too bad we just couldn't use the friendly yellow smiley face symbol as copyright, that Susan had left as a last post in this forum.
Yes, I have to say that both of their individual C symbols were very creative! Take care.

Hello Hub Community,I have a question about copyrighting our hubs. I noticed that some hub authors have the copyright symbol (C enclosed in a circle) followed by their name at the very top or bottom of their hub...

I see a red copyright notice in my account list. The hub is not in Copied Hubs and Copyscape shows no matches at all.So what is HP seeing that they don't display?

I realize we're lucky that HubPages invests money in checking some Hubs for plagiarized copies, when it's not their responsibility - so perhaps I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth! However, it would...

I love the new "copyright infringement" symbols that appear by hubs that seem to have had content copied or scraped, but is there a way to make the symbol disappear when the other site has your...

Hello,as I was exploring and reading some of the hubs I saw a copyright sign or some copyright text. Is this 'a must'? Do we need to protect our work in that way? Can someone steal our articles, publish them somewhere...

The copyright symbol has finally disappeared from my Olympic torch relay hub. As I mentioned before, it was posted on another site in China. I went in and changed a lot of it and added content and now it is not flagged...
