I have used a rented canon body. Forgot to change/remove the copyright information of previous user. Now how can I remove them in the .CR2 RAW files. Thank you!

That info is baked into the raw files for Adobe apps. Adobe apps don't/shouldn't directly edit the raw file. You would need to "indirectly" edit via the info in the XMP sidecar which holds all writable data used in Adobe apps.
Testing on duplicates of the original raw files, Canon or 3rd party software may be able to directly edit the raw files, however, they may or may not corrupt or otherwise screw up the files. Can you provide a download link to a raw file for testing?
Looking at one of my CR2 files with ExifTool, there are various "personal" fields such as:
Can you copy/paste the XMP code from the File > File Info > Raw tab so that the forum can be sure of the exact data you would like to change?
Canon cameras usually write in IPTC core - this section is editable in most EXIF editors.
@Laddernose try editing the metadata in Bridge (there is not only the ability to edit one file, but also convenient templates for batch replacing metadata)
You specifically asked how to remove or change the data in the raw file. To be clear, that is not editing the raw file. If you are happy with the info being changed in rendered copies of the raw file, that is fine, but not what you asked for.
