I work QC here at CBNP and guys have asked several of the following questions about using the copyright symbol on the title page.
If Braille Formats Section 2.3.6(d)
Section (1) says: Use the copyright symbol when it appears in print. Follow print for spacing.
Question 1: Does this mean that if the symbol appears in print it is used on the title no matter if a year or any other copyright holder information is given in print?
Section (3) says: When a text is copyrighted without a date, only the word "copyright", or the copyright symbol, is placed on the title page.
Question 2: Does this mean that if there is no copyright symbol in print, but there is a year given a transcriber can use the symbol or word "copyright", whichever he chooses?
Question 3: If there is no date, but other copyright information, such as a holder, does the same hold true?
Question 4: Unrelated, on the title page can the ISBN number (the numbers only) be on a line by itself, does it need to be preceded by the letters ISBN: on the same line, or is that a transcriber decision? See examples below.
