: Are all web site contents automatically protected in terms of being copyrighted? (Contents being, photos taken by webmaster or staff, article written by web master of staff)
: Are photos placed on a web site, with copyright statement on the web site mentioning photos, protected from 'theft'?
: I have looked online, as I am researching copyright laws as they apply to web sites and I have come up sort of confused.
: It seems like I am finding that yes all creative works online are copyright protected. However if the webmaster/photographer does not file for a copyright or register for a copyright then the web site and web master are not protected in court if someone was so copy the photos and material.
: If this is true... does that mean that CNN and online newspapers register every photograph they put online and every photograph they put in the newspaper?
: Really Confused? When does a photo or story become lawfully copyright, where if someone copies it they can sue them in court for damages and for remediation.
: Thank you for all information, sort of arrived at a stall as for as my research is going.
