Hi Leslie,

If you look at the Metadata panel and click the IPTC tab you should see the 
copyright info.

For photos that are already on your computer, select then, then click on the 
"Captions/tags" icon (far right of the window), then "Information", select 
your copyright template and then click the Apply button at the bottom right of 
the window.

For adding when importing, open the "On the fly operations" tab and select 
your copyright template.

Hope that helps.
