A Copyrighted Copyright Notice

This copyright notice is copyrighted by ME.

If you want your own copyright notice, you are going to have to go out and write one yourself.

None of this: "Oh, I think you have a cool copyright notice, I am going to copy it and paste it on my web site and look all cool!"

To be very clear: I DO NOT give you permission to just go out and copy my copyright notice.

This copyright notice is mine. It's not yours ... It's mine! It's mine! It's mine!

I put a lot of effort into thinking up just exactly what I wanted to say in my copyright notice and I am not about to let some Johnny-come-lately waltz right in and copy it. No How! No Way!

I even went as far as to put an HTML entity (ampersand, copy, semi-colon) followed by the date on my Copyright Statement, I am that serious.

So There!
