As far as I'm aware, in the UK anyway, its necessary to put a copyright
notice on stuff that doesn't belong to you. Otherwise it doesn't really mean
anything. If I build a website for a client the copyright belongs to me no
matter what the notice says, unless it has been signed over to the client
(not that I would try to claim that right). I don't think it really matters
how you do it.
