Using

\startplacefigure[title={complete caption}, list={description in the 
table of figures}]...\stopplacefigure

you can have different caption texts, like for titles.

I often use \ininner{\rotate[location=fit]{Copyright notice}}, but it’s 
a hassle to get the placement right, don’t use it within the caption. 
Using \setlayer is most reliable.
