another possibility

It is not a good idea to give your digital image files away with all the exif crud that the camera maker has decided to put in. (Why is it, that no camera maker provides consumers with complete and binding documentation of what data, in addition to the pixels, is placed in the image file? Why, for instance, would I want the world to know the serial number of my camera...?)

A better procedure for any files about to leave your control is to first remove ALL data other than pixels from it (for instance, exiftool -all= ...file...) and only after you've done that, add the copyright information to it (again, for instance, exiftool -copyright="© Peter Pumpkineater, 2014" ...file...).
