I was originally going to go with "close cover before striking," but when I saw it taken, I had to go to Plan B. As long as we accept it as a (legal) warning, I think © copyright is right on the money. It's in every book, newspaper, magazine, pamphlet, brochure, catalog, package, label, tag, you name it, that has been published for the last century plus.
