: : Dear Heather,
: : If in doubt you can refer to the source and use your words to convey the information. If the quote is very very short there is less risk in copying. There may be way around this, but starting with something that has a copyright notice is an open risk.

You own it unless there is a written agreement to to the contrary. Enforcing your rights is a matter of knowing and using the law properly.
