There isn't a single Unicode code for the copyleft symbol, but it can be
composed using U+2183 (ROMAN NUMERAL REVERSED ONE HUNDRED C) and U+20DD

If a new glyph shall be designed it would be best to mirror the
copyright symbol U+00A9 vertically.

Note that the reversed C U+2183 mentioned above is mirrored, that's
what is needed.  There is also "turned C" character U+0186 (for
phonetical open O), a C rotated by 180 degrees.  Using this would imply
to rename "copyleft" into "copyturn".  Turning left is right ;-)

I think that's not my task, a GNU guy should do this :-)
