Like the cover page, the copyright page is a simple, yet important element to any book. The single most important element to this page is (surprise!) the copyright declaration. This includes your name, the year of first publication of the work, and either the word “copyright,” and the copyright symbol ⓒ. In addition to the copyright, this page often also includes: your reservation of rights (a description of what permissions you allow to others), printing/ordering information, publisher information (if applicable), trademark notices, the edition, the ISBN, and credits to book designers, proofreaders, editors, or artists. If you prefer, we are happy to create a copyright page for you.
Here is a sample copyright page:
