# Multi-line footer for single page

I need to add a copyright notice to my paper, and do not want it to break the layout, so I want to place it into the footer/header area of the initial page. Text may be multi-line. It should be displayed on the first page only.

The following works for me.

\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\fancypagestyle{plain}{

Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, they'll be marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it). Also, note that this suggestion hold for all pages defined as plain. – Werner Feb 24 '12 at 17:59
I would use a different approach and use the eso-pic package to place something globally on the first page
