Is it possible to update a PDF's copyright status and copyright domain through Acrobat Pro action wizard?

I can only seem to update the basic Title, Author fields. Yet in others programs such as Adobes Bridge copyright fields can be easily bulk updated.

Hello Taram,

Sorry for the delayed response and inconvenience caused. AS per the description above, you want to edit/append the MetaData using Acrobat Pro Action Wizard, is that correct?

PDF documents created in Acrobat 5.0 or later contain document metadata in XML format. Metadata includes information about the document and its contents, such as the author’s name, keywords, and copyright information, that can be used by search utilities. The document metadata contains (but is not limited to) information that also appears in the Description tab of the Document Properties dialog box. Document metadata can be extended and modified using third-party products.

The Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP) provides Adobe applications with a common XML framework that standardizes the creation, processing, and interchange of document metadata across publishing workflows. You can save and import the document metadata XML source code in XMP format, making it easy to share metadata among different documents. You can also save document metadata to a metadata template that you can reuse in Acrobat.

For detailed information, you can refer to Adobe article PDF properties and metadata, Adobe Acrobat

For more information about the Custom Action, you may refer to Adobe Acrobat Pro Action Wizard

The Document metadata can be accessed (read and write) from Acrobat JavaScript, And you can run a JavaScript from the Action Wizard by defining an “Execute JavaScript” step via the “More Tools” panel.

Therefore, if you want to develop a script that changes the metadata as desired, then place that script in an Action to run it on multiple files. Please refer to the Doc object’s metadata property documentation. It is located in the Acrobat DC Javascript API Reference: https://wwwimages2.adobe.com/content/dam/acom/en/devnet/acrobat/pdfs/AcrobatDC_js_api_reference.pdf 

Let us know if the above information fulfills your query.

Regards,

Anand Sri.
