  I don't think it over does it, and it provides clarity to your readers.
Most people you want reading this aren't lawyers or copyright experts, and
they want a clear idea of what you expect.

  It may not read as a legalistic notice, but that isn't a bad thing.  If
you've ever subjected yourself to reading the "legal code" part of a
creative commons license you will recognize yours as much smaller.

  Would it stand up in court?  Most of the text is explanation to a
layperson, wrapped between  "copyright © Ron Koster" and "written
permission from the copyright holder is required."
