Placing copyright notices on an iPhone App?

Posted on 2012-09-11
Last Modified: 2012-09-12
I am working towards what I hope will be a launch of my new iPhone app in a few months.  But since I have used various open sourced libraries, I must be very careful when I write the copyright statement.

My question is where do I place such a statement?  I am new to the iPhone and may have overlooked them on the apps I use.

Can someone point me there?  Of does it go on the App Store?

I assume current iPhone developers know exactly how to answer my question.

    Typically, apps have an "About" page, most often under "Preferences," where they include their copyright statement.   For example, take a look at the "Google" app, which just about everyone has: go to Settings/About/Legal Notices.

    If you have a page in the "About" section set aside for your copyright notice, you can make it as detailed as you want, and state, for example, that you do not claim copyright in the open source libararies, etc.
