Hm, I don't think it is available - it has no defined meaning. Have you had a look in the Character Palette? I suppose you may have to insert it as a grahic.

AFAIK, the copyleft symbol is not a standard Unicode symbol. This means that very few fonts have glyphs for it. Most fonts only have symbols for commonly used Unicode characters. For example, Times New Roman usually have English letters, numbers, and punctuation, Hiragana Kaku Pro has Japanese and English characters, numbers, and punctuation, etc.

What you need to do first is verify that you have a font that actually supports the copyleft symbol.

This is one step more fiddly to set up than just using a graphic, but it does mean that you can use the copyright symbol from any font that has one (are they different from font to font? well, just in case they are...) - and this way, you can also scale your symbol easily, simply by choosing the same point size as the text it belongs with. Oh, and not using graphics keeps your docs smaller, including pdfs.

Once you've set this up once in a doc, you can then just copy the frame as many times as you want to new locations in your text or wherever (though it will need a little further tweaking for different point sizes).

[edit] anchoring it as character is a one-way ticket to insanity and frustration, by the way; best to anchor it to paragraph if possible, as I have above.
