If you mean putting a copyright notice in the meta data of the image so it shows in the EXIF information, but doesn't show anything across the image itself, then try this:
Connect your camera to your computer with the USB cable and turn the camera on, run the Canon EOS Utility application that came with your camera (the application should automatically start up, if this is how you usually download your images). Click Camera settings/Remote Shooting option, now in the middle of the remote shooting window, you'll see a little icon that is a hammer and spanner (set-up menu) click this and then underneath this you'll see a Copyright field. Click this and you'll now be able to type in your copyright message and or contact details (you can also enter the Author information here and update the firmware of your camera if you so wish). Click OK to finish, this new information will get transferred to your camera, and be embedded in each photo you now take and show on the EXIF data of your photographs.
Doing it this way, means you can search Google to find out if anyone is using your images, as people tend not to remove the copyright meta data information :-)
I hope this help.
