    Scanning thru some arabian books the following sign attracted my

    It looks like ARABIC LETTER HAH (isolated form) in a circle. It
    obviously denotes >>copyright<<. It is used consistently in books
    printed in Saudi-Arabia, but I have never seen it in a book from any other
    country (including Yemen, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordania, Egypt, Libya
    and Morrocco).

    Therefore I suggest the name SAUDI-ARABIAN COPYRIGHT SIGN for this one.
    Since the block for letterlike symbols is already almost full, but there
    are gaps in the primary arabic block (U+0600-FF), it is IMO well placed

    For a sample, see

    P.S. Other interesting symbols on my home page:

    WARENZEICHEN (encircled Wz)
    Some phonetic symbols with strikethrough:
