It's not accepting "&copy" as the entity for the copyright symbol. Is that incorrect?

I've checked multiple reference sheets online, and that is the code they use for that symbol.

<!DOCTYPE html> 
    <title>My Page</title>
    <h3>Design &amp Development</h3>
    <p>Contact me at <a href="mailto:yourname@mail.com">yourname@mail.com</a>.</p>
    <p>&copy 2017</p>

It's just incorrect because you're missing the ending semi-colon - try &copy;

You just about have it correct. At the end of &copy you need to add a semicolon ( ; ) and then you will be good to go.
