How do I apply the copyright symbol to my hub?
I wrote a few poems, and I would like to copyright them on hubpages. Could someone tell me how, please?
I'm not a copyright expert, but I think that simply publshing them on hubpages is proof they are yours. I have had my noval, Undercover, copyrighted, though I doubt anyone is going to try to steal a noval that may never get published, anyway. Its a lot of hard work getting anything out there, so most of our stuff is safe until it is already famous. Then the problem is with somebody else making money off of your effort, and not giving you proper credit, but in the case of most of us, we haven't even made any money off of our own stuff, so who'd want to steal it. To have an authentic copyright, you'd have to send it to :
Library of Congress
United States Copyright Office
101 Independence Avenue SE
Washington, DC 20559-6000
and I think they have an email address, as well.
Anything that you publish that is your own and original work is considered intellectual property and is automatically copyrighted. The only issue would be that you would need to be able to prove it was yours and the date you created it.
You can always keep a copy on the computer and print all your new work for a month duration and send it certified mail to yourself and don't open it when you receive it. Poor mans copyright. Because it established a date (the date sent) and if unopened it is not tampered with so it being certified verifies this legally.
Hope that helps.

Do you include a copyright notice in your articles? Why or why not?I never do this, but I see that a lot of folks on here do. Just wondering what the opinions are out there.

When I joined Hubpages, I was pointed very early on to HubPages' policy on copyrighted images. As I understand it, you're allowed to use:1) Public domain images2) Creative Commons licensed images (honoring the rules of the exact license type)3) Images I made and thus own the copyright to.4) Images...

I realize we're lucky that HubPages invests money in checking some Hubs for plagiarized copies, when it's not their responsibility - so perhaps I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth! However, it would be great if there was a feature by which we could hide the copyright symbol once...

if I decide I love one of my hubs so much that I want to get a common license then do I push the button while still in editing mode for that hub and copy/paste the license code info there? That says it is NOT for any html code...so where do I put common license code?

Is everything you post to hubpages automatically copyrighted?Or does something else have to be done to get my hubs copyrighted?
