And mine is that (C) has no legally meaning at all... © have meaning.
I found a link:
The correct form for a notice is:
"Copyright [dates] by [author/owner]"
You can use C in a circle © instead of "Copyright" but
"(C)" has never been given legal force. The phrase "All
Rights Reserved" used to be required in some nations but
is now not legally needed most places. In some countries
it may help preserve some of the "moral rights."
