English term or phrase: (C) & p
In folgender Konstruktion, aus einem Handbuch für ein Computerspiel:

Portions Copyright (C) and p 2006 Company XYZ

Das Portions Coypright wurde hier neulich schon gefragt, Teile Copyright oder Teilweises Copyright, aber was heißt hier das "and p"?

Steht das dann für "portions"?
Und wie gibt man das im Deutschen wieder?

(c) & (p)
Explanation:
Both signs in circles, of course. (p) stands, as far as I am aware, for 'production', i.e. production of the electronic data storage medium (CD, computer game etc.). A copyright is a right, nothing physical. Maybe in 10 years time, the company decides to reproduce this game on a completely new storage medium. The copyright date for the game would remain the same, the production date would change. On all German CDs I own, they always use the English (c) and (p) signs.
