No, a copyright notice is not necessary. Copyright protection automatically applies to original works as soon as they’re created, so a copyright notice is not required. However, adding a copyright notice could be useful for declaring your rights as the creator and deterring copyright infringement.
Although it’s not necessary, a copyright notice or copyright disclaimer serves as a clear
warning for others not to use your works without permission.
