[Tex/LaTex] How to add a copyright page to the report class.


How do I add a copyright page, just after the title page in the report or book class? (Like in standard books about a block of a copyright license at the bottom of the page).

I prefer to add the "second page" automatically. This keeps the author interface clean.

I simply define a macro \def\secondpage

which I add to the \maketitle macro using \g@addto@macro.

When the author inserts the command \maketitle, it will also typeset the copyright page. Here is the code:
