Copyright or © or both - grammar calls for some sound bites.

I wonder if people do pay attention to simple things like writing "Copyright" or "©". I mean, grammatically it does mean the same, why then use both in the folio (footer) of your website? Its either or and not both.

Examples:

http://www.isofthealth.com/
http://www.ppai.org/default
http://www.ppa.co.uk/ (this one's wasn't expected)
http://in.yahoo.com/?p=us (this too?)

I refer to "The Chicago Manual of Style" and to quote Section 1.16 Copyright Notice - "The usual notice consists of three parts: the symbol ©, the year the book is published, and the name of the copyright owner". Section 1.17 cites examples of usage.

 

Am I being too meticulous about these things and should I just let it be.
