As long as you are the author you are eligible to write a copyright notice that states that you are the copyright holder, you don't have to redirect the copyright to anyone else. I suggest you check out this page on how to use GPL.
This is what is generally written in GPL'd source code files:

In most jurisdictions, copyright applies as soon as you publish a work in some physical form (fixation). You do not need a "copyright license" from your local government. Check your local copyright laws and/or consult a lawyer to be sure. IANAL.
