Actually, a copyright notice has no legal status. In fact,
copyright notices are not necessary, as anything you create
is "copyrighted" implicitly. Something you create is yours
unless you did it for an employer or have sold it. Mr. Hutchins
does not need to label his circuits with a copyright, they're his.
Copyright notices could be regarded as an extra warning, that the
originator really does want you to honour his/her copyright and
not do with "it" as pleases you.
