: Here's the quick version - let's say that a website contains a message board. The website has a notice at the bottom of every page - Copyrighted blah blah. So the entire website is copyrighted. Agreed.
: If I make a post on the forum, do I maintain copyright over my post? What if I specifically type at the bottom "Copyrighted blah blah" ?
: I would expect that a typed post on someone else'e website cannot be copyrighted by this simple text. Can it?
