"The notice for visually perceptible copies should contain
three elements. They should appear together or in close
proximity on the copies. The elements are:
1 The symbol C (the letter C in a circle), or the word "Copyright,"
or the abbreviation "Copr."; and
2 The year of first publication. <snip>
3 The name of the owner of copyright in the work, <snip>"
Note that 1 says C OR word "Copyright", not AND.
And I'm not sure that (c) == C - so why not keep it simple and just write
