<copyright-statement> Copyright Statement
Duplication with the <copyright-holder> and <copyright-year>
Multiple Copyright Statements
- When a standards document has more than one copyright holder (for example, dual copyrights for two separate SDOs), there may be a single <copyright-statement> that names all the copyright owners. But there may also be several <copyright-statement>s, each naming one copyright owner. (Note: Best Practice is to repeat the <copyright-holder> element, once for each copyright owner as well.)
- Several equivalent copyright statements, each in a different language.
- Both a historical copyright statement and the current owner’s copyright.
- The copyright statements for different countries, even if they are all in the same language.
